I have never attended UOP but I plan to attempt to enroll in the future. I have only ever heard fantastic things about UOP and what a degree from the University can grant you access to.

If I could choose my school again, I would definitely go somewhere other than UOP. I only came here because of our good pharmacy program, despite not particularly being interested in or excited about pharmacy. There's usually not anything going on around campus since we're such a small school and we're in the middle of nowhere. School events are usually exclusive to those who like sports or are in certain fraternities, clubs, or majors. There is really no unity among the school as a whole. The people at UOP are judgmental and cliquey, it's difficult to make friends with people and meet people outside your major, except if you join a club, fraternity, or go to parties often. There isn't really much to do other than study for someone who's not in a fraternity or a fun and active club. I would definitely want to apply to another school that has more school wide social events where I can meet more people and diversify the people I know, since UOP is basically mostly Asians, especially those in Pre-Pharmacy and Pharmacy School. I definitely wish I left California as well, since I really want to go to the East Coast or Seattle. Social life is important to me, since at UOP I don't have one.
