Where is Rutger's Pharmacy school. I have broken my college list down to Cornell, Tufts and Rutgers School of Pharmacy.

    Busch is in Piscataway, NJ. That's why they always say they're reporting from Piscataway when they cover the sports teams.

    Do you have any questions about classes/research/etc?

    Food
    The research oppurtunites if I were in the school of pharmacy.
    The people. Are they smart, quiet, snobbish, secluded.
    Diversity (race and interests).
    The quality of the food
    The girls.
    The extracurricular activites.
    The dorms
    The academics. I love challenging courses, but are the courses excessive in difficulty.

    Research.. Rutgers is a major research school so there will be no problem there.

    People- most people are smart. You will have you snobbish, secluded, quite kids on every college campus. But most kids are nice to each other.

    Diversity- there is so much diversity at Rutgers, not just on Busch campus.

    Quality of food- buch campus dining hall is the best at Rutgers. I live on Cook campus but will make the trip over to Bucsh

    Girls- Pretty good looking. No compliants from me.

    Dorms- Busch has some of the best dorms.

    Academics- very challenging. It is very hard to get all A's or B's at this school. You will fall behind quickly in upper level classes if you do not take it seriously

    exclusively pharm. schools? well there are many colleges offer pharmacy as a major, but there are only about 13 in the nation that has the 0+6 program and Rutgers is one of them.

    ^ a collective list of all the pharm. schools in the US

    Some around the east coast who offer this 0+6 program include Northeastern University, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences, Rhode Island University (i think?), St. John's University, and University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. I'm sure there are more if you research...

    Apparently if you want to see the rankings of pharm. schools, they aren't according to their educational prestige. It had something to do about money and funding but I forgot.

    As long as you graduate with a Pharm. D and you get a license, it doesn't matter where you graduated from - i heard they hire you anyway because of lack of personnel.
