Not currently enrolled accepted as a senior in HS & lucky enough to been able to hold a great relationship with this school. First of all, the school is so nurturing. You can first witness that through meeting admissions counselors. They're SO SWEET, actually care about you, & show that the COLLEGE cares about you. I met the counselor at a college fair & from there, we instantly clicked! She followed up w/ emails, letters, interviews and super friendly greetings when I went to the open house. GREAT financial aid, always looking to improve. I heard the best parts about MCPHS are the massages, puppy visits during finals, etc. Also, this is a college where it's great to make friends quick being very diverse. There's people from all over the world, people you can actually connect for once in your life because they're interested in the same things as you: medicine. Still waiting on other acceptance letters, but my experience with MCP so far has been unforgettable!

MCPHS creates a fun environment for learning along with the best possible facilities and even more interesting professors. The dorms are strategically situated in a building and are therefore shielded from any harsh weather to ensure that it does not affect the learning of the students within. Furthermore, the school campus is located in the heart of Boston making every possible service very accessible to the students. If I had to change one thing about the school, it would be the amount of grants given to the underprivileged students and I would hope to change this during my course in the school by creating a forum for donations and suggesting a few events for fundraising.
Our president makes more money than the president of Harvard which has 3x the student population. He’s bringing in over a million dollars every year while our school is outdated, at risk of losing accreditation, and lacking ample study space for the high amount of students they continue to accept each year. They jack up the acceptance rate, and force all the freshman to take extremely difficult “weed out” classes in order to make $30,000 off those students that drop out after their first year. Our graduation rate is so low because of this. i’m embarrassed to be a student of this university knowing that all my tuition is going into the presidents wallet. That being said, there is a very close knit community where we all bond over how much we hate our university. The classes are challenging and it is nice to be around like-minded people. I do love my university and the opportunities it has given me. However, this school would be a much better place without president Monahan.
