The University of the Incarnate Word has so much to offer. From the academics and excellent professors to the life-long friendships, you will not look back and regret coming to UIW. Most of the students really enjoy their experience at UIW. The friendships formed here usually last through college and beyond. There are also more genuine friendships since UIW is a small school, and keeping in contact with fellow classmates is very easy because you see the same people almost daily. UIW is a very diverse school, so it is like a "small world." The memories formed at UIW are endless.
The education is top-of-the-line, as it thoroughly prepares each student to excel in his or her desired field of study. The smaller atmosphere allows for more personal attention for each student. The relationships between students and teachers is very strong, and professors know students by their names because of the low student-to-teacher ratio. Sure, you will hear complaints here and there, whether it be about residence life or the cafeteria food, but keep in mind that everyone has different tastes, and nothing is perfect. Overall, students are very satisfied with their education at UIW and all that it brings them not only while they are in school but after they graduate as well. Professors and advisers make sure that their students are more than prepared for their careers and for whatever life may bring in the future.
Most students at the University of the Incarnate Word own their own laptops or computers but those who don't have an easy time getting on to computers in the library/computer labs. The wifi is usually pretty fast with the exception of the days students are signing up for classes or housing. The printers are always available to students. There is a good number of them so there is never a wait.
Becoming a pre-pharmacy major was a piece of cake. All I had to do was tell my advisor that pharmacy was the path I chose, and she placed me in classes that were necessary for that career. Applying to pharmacy school is a completely different story though. I haven't applied yet so I can't give my personal opinion on how difficult it is. From what I've heard though, the process is very nerve-racking and it requires an interview, PCAT scores, hours from shadowing other pharmacists, and more. The only advice I can give is to study hard for the PCAT and be up to date on medical-related current events.
I have been dreaming about going into the medical field since I was a young girl. Pharmacy seemed like the perfect way to go since I love chemistry and would be able to help people in need. If I could do it all over again, I would still pick the path of becoming a pharmacist. My ultimate goal is to become a pharmacist, but I haven't decided what type or where I would work yet. At the moment, I have no concerns for finding a job since I am attending a great school with an even greater pharmacy program and also since it is a field that will always be needed.
The business department messed up filing my scholarship so I lost a lot of money from FASFA that was much needed. Anytime you go to them they are rude and unwilling to help. It is really frustrating that they said I owed over nine hundred dollars when I had been paid in full for over two months and they would not give me a reason. ONLY when my parents threatened to get a lawyer involved did the Business office decide to realize that we did not owe them money and to write a check to has taken over a month to receive back. Do not ask them for help find help elsewhere and watch your accounts closely all year because otherwise they charge you for things that you do not owe.
The computer personnel do not know much if anything about computers. The internet does not always work and I live on campus so it is frustrating. The printing is a little higher than I would want to pay but it is not too high yet. The internet is often unworking on weekends because of "maintenance" and it is really frustrating.
