What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
USP is known as the first pharmacy school in North America. It's a pretty small school and allows you the attention you need for your course of study - Pharmacy, especially. It's an accredited school, and though it's hard to getting good grades is pretty demanding, it's not impossible to do so. You'll pretty much enjoy your time here, if you set your mind to it, and manage your time wisely.

It's in the name - the University of the SCIENCES - if you're not intending to major in something sciencey, don't come here because there's literally nothing by science. I'm planning to major in Pharmacy, which is the most popular major at this university, and it's tough - come sharp and ready to dominate this year! Good luck!

Apply ealry!
Fill out your FASFA on time and ealry if possible!
Get to know your freshman guidance councilers! They will help you with the transition academically and mentally. Also be sure to always use all the the schools resources available to you!! Tutoring, library, student health for physical and mental issues, office hours of professors, and study rooms for grop studying!
Tiamia from Philadelphia, PA
Be ready to study, but make sure you balance fun and studying. As long as you can accomplish this you are in for a treat.
Daniel from Linwood, NJ
Study and work hard but remember to have some fun. It is a super small but tight knit school where you have to keep up with studies but it's all fun. Enjoy the college life and make it count!
Christina from Sewell, NJ
Be sure to get a lot of scholarship money.
Kalvin from Philadelphia, PA
Relax all summer because when the school year begins, there's no room for relaxing after Freshman year!
Tiffany from Philadelphia, PA
A helpful hint I would give to an incoming freshman would be to have fun and make lots of friends. People hear often focus so much on grades that they isolate themselves or stress themselves beyond necessity. However, you still need to remember where you are. The school is hard and requires a conscious effort to get good grades, but you should always make some time to go out, have fun, and relieve some stress!
Laura from Warminster, PA
Great science university
Anna from Magnolia, DE
AP classes are a good idea if you're thinking of going here. I didn't take any, however, extra classes such as Probability and Statistics helped in the classes you'd least expect them too.
