University of the Pacific Reviews
UOP teaches you life skills you will use in life everyday, no matter what your major.
It’s also a great school to move on to any graduate school. Every graduate school knows UOP puts out quality. But my favorite part is the professors, they will sit with you and help you figure out what you need in order to grow academically. It might have a higher acceptance rate, but it’s because they don’t play the statistics game larger universities thrive on. They just want quality students that want to learn and earn a quality education.
