    University of Utah

    • Salt Lake City, UT
    • 3,387 reviews
    College Freshman:It's not nearly as difficult or focused as I expected, a little disorganized, but we are the first class through the new program. Registration directions were unclear, and course catalogs were not updated. I'm also surprised at the amount of academic entitlement I see in the college of pharmacy.

    Weber State University

    • Ogden, UT
    • 1,615 reviews
    College Sophomore:This is a good school to get the prerequisites and beginning school at. Not to continue if you wish to get a PhD etc. It is not super social but it does it's job on giving classes. The math program needs help because it is not very good. The medical program is the main reason to be looking at going to this school because it is a good program.
