I know about South and LECOM. I know they are both pretty small. I was just wondering what some others were.

The main reason I am asking is because I am from a very rural area. I know everyone around and they all know me. My H.S. class had 105. I just seem to feel more comfortable around that kind of enviroment with smaller class sizes and every knows everyone.

I am not saying that I am looking for just rural schools, I just mean smaller schools.

Note: When I apply, I will more than likely have a wide spectrum of school types. I just want to see if there are some good, small schools out there that I may take interest in.

UCSD takes in 60 students each year, and it's fairly a new school.

Creighton's campus class is 110, so about the size of your H.S. class. Omaha isn't really all that urban either (IMHO) and being the biggest city in Nebraska doesn't count - it's a small'ish city.

Are you at a small college for your pre-reqs too? Or are you looking for 0-6 schools?

I had never thought about it but my H.S. graduating class was 54 kids, and I'm in Creighton's distance class with 55 students...hmmm, weird.

Our class size at Michigan ranges from 70-80, one of the smallest pharmacy schools out there as a part of one of the biggest schools in the nation. It's quite a unique experience in a quaint affluent town.

Yeah, Creighton is small-ish...

Look at Univ of Wyoming or Univ of Montana or North Dakota St or South Dakota State. When it comes to small, look towards the rocky mt/midwest states...

Overall in size USP is small (~2800 students). However, you will be coming in with close to 300some classmates. However, don't worry, it will drop to the low 200s before you can blink an eye. :laugh:

Oh yeah - I forgot about that! My brain is really toast...:sleep:

And Backwoods Boy, I didn't even notice you're in Southern Illinois - I'm in St. Louis. I'd check out SIU-Edwardsville - I think their entering class is in the 80-82 range and in-state tuition would be nice too.

I'm getting pretty fried too now. It doesn't seem like I'm getting thru things quickly. I have NOTHING to do but study until finals, but it still seems like it's not enough time!! :(

I've looked into SIUE before. SIUE is basically a guaranteed application unless something happens. Edwardsville is roughly an hour and a half from my house.

I've heard of Touro but don't know much about it. I may have to look into them more.

Univ. of Appalachia is a small rural school, and they have a very positive mission for rural pharmacists.

St. John Fisher in Rochester, NY. 75 per class. A part of their philosophy includes learning in a small community.

I'd say most pharmacy schools have pharmacy classes of around 110 +/ 30. However, the size of the overall campus population is going to vary quite a bit.

Huh? They had over 600 applicants last year and only selected 82. How is that guaranteed? I guess it could be if you already attend SIUE undergrad and have a 4.0 GPA and a 90+ PCAT.

Idaho State currently only accepts 60 each year, but they are working towards increasing this eventually to 80 per year. My class started with 60, but we only have 56 now.

How is Omaha a "smallish city"? It has a population of about 420,000 and is the 42nd largest city in the United States. Anyway to stay on topic of the thread UNMC(Nebraska Medical Center) has a class size of 65 for each incoming class.
