What impressed you positively?

"very nice faculty, students, and staff. Nice, modern, clean building. Lots of technology. Ability to travel to rotation sites during 3 and 4th years - the hospitals you rotate at pay your room and board. They also have international rotations in countries all over the world." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"kind of felt like a boarding school. The dress code is a drag, especially for the guys. One student told us that one guy got into trouble for not wearing his tie when he was studying in the lounge before class! She also said you're not supposed to wear scrubs during anatomy lab. What in the heck are you supposed to wear, a tuxedo? I think they're kind of missing the point with the dress code business. Oh, and Erie is definetly not the glamour capital of North America. But you're only there for 2 years." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the PBL pathway only accepts 40 students and the rest have to do the LD Pathway. (except for the few that do Independent study). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I liked LECOM more than I thought I would. The people in my interview group were very cool. One of the other interviewees suggested that it would have been fun to get together and go out before the interview. I agree. LECOM is going to be opening a new campus in Tampa, FL next year which is going to be a class of 150 people all on the PBL pathway. This means that they'll have more clinical rotation sites in FL, which is a good thing. Aside from the fact that there was the boarding school feel to the place, I liked it. I think that if you were in the PBL pathway (on campus 15 hours a week) it would be a great place to go to school. Being there 35 hours a week (the LD pathway) is something else all together."
