4.23 Average Rating
Thomas Jefferson University is a great school in developing the future professionals of healthcare. Each year it develops new doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and others to help those who can not help themselves. I love being at this school because I know I am part of a group of people who will make a difference in peoples' lives.
Peter from Philadelphia, PA
I was accepted into the Thomas Jefferson PACE program for and BS/MS in Occupational Therapy my senior year of high school, and I was given the opportunity to attend the college of my choice for two years. After completing my two years of prerequisites at Camden County College, I am very excited to attend this beautiful university. I have visited the campus numerous times and each and every time have realized how happy I am I made the choice to go to such a wonderful university!
