Applying is simple, but a long process. Apply early and have all the necessary documents and letters of recommendation prepared. Albany College of Pharmacy is a very diverse and open minded college and is willing to see the potential in all candidates. I am currently enrolled in Vermont branch campus located in Colchester Vermont and it is quite an experience! The school is small so everyone knows everyone and the teacher to student ratio is great for a professional school! If Pharmacy is your path, then definitely give Albany a look!

No Communal Showers! Every option for dorms at ACPHS are good. Every dorm room is complete with its' own private bathroom. The biggest plus is there are no shared hall bathrooms. However, that does mean you are responsible for cleaning it. The freshman dorms are doubles, triples or quads complete with a bed, dresser, closet space, and desk for every student. The second year dorms are suite style housing 5-7 students with 5 or 6 bedrooms, a common room, and bathroom. The upperclassmen option is the best. They have a full apartment style dorm. There are four bedrooms and two baths. There is also a living room and full kitchen.

The housing is very good! I have lived on campus for the past four years. The first-year housing is the best since you have your own bathroom per a pair of roommates, and there is air conditioning. Second-year housing is not as good since it's suite style without a kitchen, no air conditioning and a communal bathroom per suite.
