What exactly is the point in apply to a school that isn't accredited? If they aren't doesn't that mean you cannot sit for the boards and therefore not become a pharmacist? Could someone please explain. Maybe I am missing something...
Do you mean not fully accredited? I know for other types of schools they can start teaching after they are deemed acceptible. They however not fully accredited until they graduate their first class. In my opinion if they got the go head to teach im sure they will be great. It is hard to get the partial accredidation, which means the boards believe they will succed. Just take what i say with a grain of sand though.What exactly is the point in apply to a school that isn't accredited?

You still get finiancial aid. Who could afford 100k+?
Must be nice. :cry: I just keep telling myself im a better person for not having it on a silver platter.My roommate, the girl that lives beside of me, and about 5 of my classmates (that I know of, could be a lot more) at Columbia Dental school have parents that are able and willing to pay for their full tuition/living cost which is around 300K for 4 years. You will be surprised...
Here's a question I have...
I understand that if a school has candidate status, someone who has graduated may sit for the NAPLEX. What if you are in the 2nd or 3rd class the school has admitted and the 1st class bombs the NAPLEX? I understand that no school has never not reached full accreditation, but say hypothetically the above situation were to occur - what would happen to the students who are still in that school?
calisoca said:I'll go ahead and add something nobody has said yet (unless I read over it). As long as you are enrolled in a year when the school has pre-accred status, you can sit for NAPLEX. Even if they lose the pre-accred status (which will never happen) after you have been enrolled, you can still sit for NAPLEX because you matriculated in a year that they had the status. This point was brought to my attention during my Touro interview by the chair of admissions. A few kids asked about it and he emphasized it into the ground.
I really have no other resources for this specific scenario except the chair of admissions at Touro; however, he was adamant about this issue. Perhaps they are in 'candidate' status (clearly I am not up to speed on the difference between the two) though instead of pre-accred status because their first class graduates this May. The issue arose when a kid asked what if he gets accepted for Fall '09, and the school fails to get full accred status. The chairman responded by saying as long as the institution has pre-accred (or perhaps it was candidate status) in the year you matriculate, you can sit for NAPLEX. Nevertheless, like you said no school has ever failed to ultimatley achieve full accred.

Just do your research, and someone still hasn't found my old post, I'm sad. calisoca, go find it.
I don't need those 10 extra points man. I'm cool.
Btw, how you likin' the lakers start this season? Pretty badass if you ask me. It's time to take the throne back.
Ah found it, gotta love advanced search. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=573301
And seriously, GO LAKERS. As much as I'd like to ride this wave of euphoria, I'm cautiously waiting for the all star game to roll around to let this joy out....yeahhh. I think they just gotta shore up defense but so far so good. Gonna see if I can score some tickets when they come play the sixers next week...just gotta, ya know, temper my excitement lest i get beat up on the subway ride home.
Heck, I'll fly to Philly to beat him up myself.As long as you wear a Kobe jersey you shouldn't get beat up in Philly since that is where Kobe is from. You might get beat up for wearing a Vujacic jersey and headband, but that's probably just because of the headband
