    Thinking of applying to MCW after my pre reqs are done within two or three years. However, it's stated they are not fully accredited yet; how long and what are the chances of this occuring by the time I apply? Furthermore, it's quite expensive at over 40k a year, how common are merit or any other form of scholarship?

    Those are all of the same questions I have. I'm interviewing with them this Friday. I'll let you know if I hear any updates regarding accreditation and what their financial aid is like.

    Hi! So the interview went really well. I got admitted to their fall class. They offer FAFSA and like you said their tuition is about 40k a year. Their school is still new (their inaugural class was admitted last fall) so scholarships are available.
    What I really like about the school is their unique learning style. From day 1, they partner their PharmD students with other professional students (PA, MS, MD) and teach collaborative work so that we are aware of what other healthcare professionals are doing to better benefit the patient(s). Accreditation is still pre-candidate and they can't really do much about it until they have a graduated class. So that won't be for another 2 years. But from what I saw during the interview, they have a solid plan and sufficient resources to make sure their school and their students succeed.
