how will going to a school that just received accrediation, affect your acceptances for jobs, or your salary? does it have any bearing, does it mean anything, will jobs care or not?
i really like umass-worchester. can anyone comment on this school. it will receive accrediation this year.

Hi. I live in MA and have a question. Tryinghard, is there a program offered by the University of Massachusetts at Worcester or are you talking about the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (private school) located in Worcester. If UMASS has a new program I'd love to apply because it's a state university and the tuition for me would be around 5-6k. Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences located in Worcester has a tuition of about 29k per year. I'm pretty sure people on the board have confused the two. Can anyone clear this up for me?

I had the same questions about new schools until I talked to a pharmacy manager at large hospital in PA. He said that the license is the important document not the school name. Further, he had just hired a pharmacist who graduated in the first class of another new pharmacy school in PA and he said he had no problems hiring someone from a new school.
I can say this about LECOM and their first class - many employers have visited looking for interns. Pharmacies are facing a large shortage and are welcoming students from new schools....
