i have a friend who is interested in pharmacy school. she's always lived in tx, and is looking for a pharm school in the north/northeast

i don't know about the reputations of many colleges of pharmacy outside of texas, so i'm hoping some of y'all can help her out. these are some of the schools she's asking about: midwester university, illinois;  university of illinois, chicago;  massachusettes college of pharm;  northeaster;  rutgers;  long island;  temple;  st john's;  union university in albany;  wilkes;  philadelphia.....just to name a few.

any and all help is greatly appreciated, i'll just pass the info on to her.

Well, of course I'm going to promote Pitt, but in all seriousness... only certain schools have KY, and of those, not all are co-ed. So if that plays into the decision at all:

No KY: Northeastern, Rutgers, Long Island, St. John's
KY not coed: MCP, Temple, Albany, Philadelphia

So basically out of that list, that leaves Midwestern, Chicago, Wilkes. Being from PA, out of these 3 I only know Wilkes, and I wouldn't say they are one of the better schools in PA (I'm trying to be PC here). Plus its private and costs an arm and a leg. Seems like most of the schools on her list are private... I would encourage her to look at some of the state-funded schools like Pitt, UB, Ohio State, etc. They have great (if not better) programs, ie, more bang for your buck. I would also recommend programs that are directly affiliated with a hospital system, ie, better rotations with people who are leading experts in their field.

Since moving to NY, I can speak a little bit towards those schools. Out of the 4 schools in NY, those with the highest pass rate on the boards in order of best to worst is UB, St. John's, Albany, LIU.

Just my $0.02.
