It really doesn't matter where you study for a pharmacy degree. Graduate from east and you can apply the license in west or vice versa. I studied in Idaho & practice in ca. Hospitals or drug store only look at your license, not your degree. Considering how difficult to get in pharmacy schools nowadays , it will be a big plus if the school garanteed to receive PharmD in 7 years. I saw tons of UC or CS students spent 5 or 6 years and still couldn't get into pharmacy schools.
