2 College Student

Academics: The most popular major at Albany College of Pharmacy is the Pharm.D. degree, which is the most difficult. Some professors have a strong accent which makes classes confusing and difficult.

4 College Student

Academics: For the most part professors at Albany College of Pharmacy are very helpful and have flexible office hours. Some professors utilize online tests, which means no partial credit.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The program offers many opportunities for internships over the summer while the workload and curriculum may be fairly taxing, especially if you fall behind. P1 to P3 years are half class, half pharmacy experience while the last year is completely pharmacy experiential.

Academics: The workload is very heavy. But there are tons of opportunities to get involved and network. There are lots of clubs and organizations pertaining to the profession and some just having to do with hobbies. There is some greek life, but most of it is pharmacy related and/or academic. Facilities are nice and a new athletic field was just put in. I use the track. There are lots of opportunities for internships (they are required).

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics are very challenging. They try to "weed out" the students who aren't serious in the first few years, so professors are very tough on you. However, they spend a lot of time giving extra help if you seek it out. Even when classes are large they use "clickers" to keep everyone involved. The curriculum could use some work, sometimes the courses are too short and go too fast to thoroughly learn all of the information. Registration is hectic since there's only a window of a few hours to get classes, but they help you after registration closes if you didn't get the classes you want. The workload is heavy but that is to be expected.
