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!

I love my college, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. I knew from the moment I walked inside for Accepted Students Day that MCPHS was the place for me! It's in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts and is surrounded by many amazing opportunities and hospitals. This college is very focused on medical professions and really set up their students for success by having great professors and opportunities to find nearby internships/volunteer opportunities. I am very happy with my choice to attend MCPHS because the courses I am taking are interesting and important for my future. The location of the school is ideal for me, as I plan on volunteering at Boston Children's Hospital which is right across the street. MCPHS also has excellent graduate programs including the Master of Physician Assistant program that I plan on applying for in a few years. MCPHS is a small, safe, diverse college worth looking into if you're interested in the medical field.
MCP is a college with a small community that all works together to become better healthcare providers and lead the future of medicine. The best aspect of MCP has to be it's community and the professors.There are people that come from all types of backgrounds who end up at MCP and it is ultimately this diversity and bonding between people of different backgrounds that make this university worthwhile to attend. The programs are relatively well founded and capable to preparing students for the real world and if education is really well valued in one's eyes, then this would be an acceptable choice. But if someone wants to be a part of a massive community or play in athletics, I wouldn't recommend MCPHS.
