Yes, the best and most respected is Pacific's 2+3 program!!! All the others are not as good as this one!

Maybe you got the wrong edition of tomorrows paper, dude! I don't know how you can make the allegation that the other schools pale in comparison to UOP. I would never gloat like that because there is nothing to prove that. Anyway, to answer the OP's question, here is a list

University of the Pacific
Midwestern University (Glendale Arizona)
Las Vegas College of Pharmacy
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine
MCP- Worchester
Albany University- Albany New York

This is what I can think of for now

EED, I've read some of your other posts and I know you're partly messing around when you make bold posts about UOP. BTW, of the three year programs listed on this thread, UOP would seem to be the best program. I've gotta know, what school is Podunk U?

Also, Ferris State University----3 years exactly, but you get one whole summer off in your second year.

Aw leave EarlyE alone, he's a good guy. I don't think he means to offend anyone.
I'm not too swift on CA logistics, but did you hear that UCLA med school was selling body parts on the black market? How awful is that? Pacific isn't part of that school is it?:eek:

Maybe not, but it did offend me since I do go to an accelerated PharmD program.

No. UOP is private and in Northern California. UCLA is part of the UC system, is public and is in Southern California.

How do the accelerated programs work? Do you go through the summers? Longer semesters? More classes per semester? I'm guessing a combination of them all.. Getting out a year early sure does look tempting!

for Midwestern-Glendale, the program is 2 years and 9 months long, and goes like this:
Fall Quarter: September-November
Winter Quarter: December-February
Spring Quarter: March-May
Summer Quarter: June-August

So, we don't get summers off. Third year is only fall, winter, and spring quarters; graduation is the first week of June. What looks cool about the third year is that only the fall quarter is didactic work, and the remaining two quarters is all rotations. I'm definitely looking forward to it!

In the accelerate programs do you get enough hours in doing your rotations to immediately take the boards or do you have to do work outside of school?

You generally get enough hours. At my school, you do not, but that is due to Georgia Law which we are trying to change. In the state of Georgia, you can have no more than 1000 hours credited to you from a school. This obviously is unfair to students at my school that plan to stay in Georgia. In Florida, all you need to prove is that you graduated with a PharmD. Go Figure!

Well i am in AL and I know we require 1500. 400 have to be after your third professional year. But we can get all of our hours (and the school provides the opportunity) while we are in school.

are you at that new school in savannah? when did they accept their first class.

i know FL laws are really funny though and i also know that GA has a wet lab and "GA boards" that we don't have

one question, if a rph was to try to obtain a liscens in GA would they just have to take the law test or would they have to take the wet lab as well?

Georgia requires 1500 hours as well.

Yes, I do go to the new school in Savannah. Its called South University and I'm in the inagural class of 2006 (We started last aug)

Floirda laws are funky, im sure Baggywrinkle can attest to that. You take the wet lab with the law exam in Georgia. I'm not planning on taking the Georgia board when I graduate. I plan to take it in Florida and West Virginia. :)

Organization wise, its going kind of slow but we are working on it. It's hard with a limited amount of students, but once we get all three classes here, it should be alright. Currently, we have SGA, APhA-ASP, and we are about to get ASHP. How and why have you heard so much about my school? Is that bad or good?

I am very involved with Kappa Psi on a regional level. Our province includes AL, GA, and FL and I know a lot of people in the pharmacy schools in all three states. I know we are trying to get a chapter started there and have been in talks with the dean. I also think that LKS might start a chapter there too.
I was just wondering what all else was going on there

Pharmacy is a very small world once you are involved in any organization on a broader level than just school. You tend to see the same people over and over again.

I haven't heard anything bad about your school. But it was pointed out to us by our dean that the school is not named as most would think b/c its in the south but that it actually is a guy's name.

Ours is the same way (i'm sure it is with most private schools) with McWhorter SOP.

I've heard about Kappa Psi and LKS....so far it's been all talk but we will see what happens. Yeah our school is named after John South III, pretty funny huh? I am also involved. I am the President Elect for the ASP chapter.

Aw....I've heard from Southern Californians that Northern Californian people are "slow".... I was in L.A. on business and that's what the natives told me.
Is that true? Is there a little NorCal and SoCal rivalry?
