What do you like least?

"The administration at the Erie campus is terrible. They are only interested in money and not their students. They do not want to help us succeed. One example is our simulation labs: we have two simulation men for 300 students and we only get to use the simulation twice a year. The simulation lab is vital to developing our clinical skills before we go out on rotations in year three. Many of the teachers have petitioned to get another sim man, but instead of doing that the school opens up a new campus in Elmira in order to make even more of a profit. They also bought the naming writes to the buffalo sabers home stadium. Another example is that the school is professional about wasting your time. They preach professionally yet the deans that preach it constantly never show up to class on time. They will also make you come in on a Friday afternoon just so you have to stay in Erie for a weekend. The best analogy I have for LECOM is the Walmart of medical schools. They make a product and they make a lot of it, but it is extremely low quality I would recommend going to any other medical school if you are accepted elsewhere." | Report Response

"The administration is absolutely terrible and completely inept. If you can avoid it, do not go to the Seton Hill campus. They constantly put their students at a huge disadvantage are not apologetic about it." | Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"no" | Report Response

"This school had been under review for 2 years for low board and shelf scores. They do not give you dedicated board time even though this is pretty standard. If you are not going to pass based on practice exams, then they place you in mandatory remediation for boards which is 50hrs of lecture a week for 1 month (they use one of your vacation rotations to do this)." | Report Response

"This school is very suffocating. They treat adults like children. I seriously felt that I had more personal liberties in high school." | Report Response
