    Wingate has a very nice group-oriented curriculum that has some elements from med school. This is the first year where their students will take the NAPLEX. I found the student body to have plenty of camaraderie , which is nice. So overall, I think Wingate could be a "diamond in the rough" in a few years, so people should apply there as an option as it still has the newness surrounding the program.

    That's just my opinion after touring there as a part of my interview, so take my mini-review with grain of salt and contact an actual student for a better impression of the school.;)

    I completed my B.S. there.....small school, TINY town.

    I have no regrets, I still have those friends (graduated in 1997) but if you are looking for big city life, or even big town life, it may not be for you.
    one grocery store, 2 fast food joints, 2 gas stations....ZERO bars or anything else.

    as for the Pharmacy program, I don't know.
    I didn't even apply there b/c I felt like "been there, done that"

    Good luck to everyone!

    I attend Wingate and don't feel that the size of the town has any impact on my quality of life. Who cares if there are zero bars, one grocery store, 2 fast food joints, 2 gas stations, etc. If you pick your pharmacy school based on these characteristics then maybe you shouldn't be in pharmacy school...but I guess some people care about those things.

    I went to one of the largest private universities in the country for my undergraduate degree, right in the middle of Boston, accross from Harvard and MIT. Yea, Boston has tons of fun things to do, so many bars, restaurants, gas stations, etc. However, I feel that my quality of life is 100x better than it was in Boston because Wingate is such a tight community. And yes, the students are not as competetive with each other as other places that I have heard of b/c Wingate does place so much emphasis on working as a team, etc.

    I was in the Feb 2nd interview group and was notified that next week of my acceptance. Pretty stoked about it. Also just incase nobody in this thread knew, there is a facebook group with a few of us who are either thinking about Wingate SOP or who are going there in the fall.

    It's there.....:)

    Wingate will just be fully accredited sometime around May so that could be one reason why it doesn't show up in your search. Still, type in Wingate pharmacy in Google and you'll find it.

I might set up a tour of it in a few weeks considering im a senior this yr! i was wondering for those who get in is there anyway u tell me your gpa and pcat scores? I heard that the campus is beautiful and its a lot like High Point University (where i'm currently getting by BS in bio).
    Thanks everyone and congrats to those who got accepted!
