I would wait to hear of actual Northstate students' experiences, but as I am in a pharmacy school that uses teams for some learning activities (not to the extent that Northstate does), here are my thoughts: some teams might turn out to be really good, energetic, and prepared. Others might end up being quiet or ill-prepared, and it might end up feeling like one or two people are doing all the work or at least taking charge while other people are reluctant to step up for whatever reason, like being underprepared or shy. Considering the pharmacy students tend to be reasonably motivated and intelligent, most teams will probably be somewhere in the middle. It's great when it works, but it might not work all the time.
