Bobbie from Saint Louis, MO
St. Louis College of Pharmacy is one of the best pharmacy schools in the nation. It is very competitive and isn't like your average college. It's small, and the learning is very hands on.
HALLIE from ST LOUIS, MO
STLCOP is a manageable challenge. You have to work to get your grades, but the feeling of working for them and then getting them is rewarding. Don't consider asking for help a sign of weakness, it's a hard program and everyone knows that.
Alexa from Junction City, KS
I feel that I made the perfect decision when I decided to attend the St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Everyone here is extremely friendly, and help all around you from the staff and upperclassmen. The good thing is that since everyone here is trying to become a pharmacist, we all know what each of us is going through.
