Teachers do not actually teach, people are racist

Mar 10 2014Physical Therapy/Exercise Science
Teachers do not actually teach, people are racist to white people, 50 grand for crappy food, dorm living, and bad teaching. When I first looked at USP it seemed much different. Wish I knew how being at this school would really feel like now that I am trapped here paying this school so much money for crappy living. A state school is much nicer than this and costs less. Go there instead.

Ask yourself one thing before applying to this

Ask yourself one thing before applying to this school. "Is this seriously what I want to do" Aside from Greek Life most of the social life at this school is not good, and there is little to no school spirit. You are going to be doing a lot more work than most of your friends that go off to other schools. The faculty is sub par at best. Some professors expect you to know the most ridiculous things while others really want to make sure you understand what they are teaching. Some professors make class as fun as possible while others will put you to sleep. The classes themselves are very interesting to learn but they are REALLY REALLY hard and require many hours of studying to do well in once you get past your first year. The pay off to all this though? For some reason this school has an amazing reputation in the Pharmaceutical industry so if you go to PCP and are an exceptional student (at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA by graduation) you should be much better off than most of your friends that didn't go to this school. I don't know why but for some reason every Pharmacist/professional that I have told that I go to this school always say "Wow that is a really good school"

Do NOT go here if you are an

Do NOT go here if you are an out of state student (except for NJ). This campus is dead every weekend. Most students are from the surrounding areas and go home every weekend (especially those who live in the dorms). The cafeteria barely functions on the weekends (very limited hours and food choices) because nobody is here (expect to be eating the same soggy french fries and sad grilled cheese sandwich most evenings...). You might think to yourself that this downtime every week will allow you extra time to study, but that is not always the case. Places like the library and athletic center also keep limited hours on the weekends so if you want to study, don't be surprised if the library closes at 8.Don't join the pharmacy program here if you are not driven to prove yourself in the face of adversity. While freshman year teachers are mostly welcoming and caring towards new students, many teachers in your time here will feel it is their personal duty to "weed out the unworthy." They will talk about how the quality of students accepted to this school has diminished over the years, but how they have chosen to maintain the same level of scholarship in their class (mind you pharmacy used to be a BS degree...).
