last summer i met someone from their charter class as well. she was excellent. i think LV is right in that the bad rep may stem from all the politics going on there. A large number of faculty suddenly all left last year. That was a huge issue that i think made the news. Wasn't there a thread about this topic a while back? Does anyone recall...i don't feel like doing a search.Originally posted by LVPharm
My preceptor from Target was a graduate of the charter class and turned out to be a darn good pharmacist. We'll see how the school does with California going to the NAPLEX + CA MPJE instead of the old board exam (the link above reflects the results from the old exam given last June).
As far as school reputation is concerned, the only thing I've heard is from a friend of mine who transferred from Western over to my school (one of 3 people who made the transfer from Western to NVCP), something about the distaste he had for the "politics" that surrounded the school and the administration...but that's just one guy's opinion.
I guess not. They are probably busy looking for their "runaway" faculty membersOriginally posted by wstrn08
Wow, so did the faculty member(s) leave this year?? well, i hope it is not too bad there. are there any current students there who are members of this forum and can give us insight???
I just attended a pharmacy information session yesterday and had the opposite experience. The students that I spoke to (7 different ones) had nothing but great things to say about the school and faculty. They seemed very pleased with their experiences. By the way, these students were NOT part of the students giving the presentation/campus tour, so they had no incentive to deceive any prospective students.Originally posted by michelleca4
I remember someone saying the same thing about the faculty. For example, those who interviewed at Western were told by Western students "try not to go here because all the great faculty are leaving for higher paying positions."
