What are your general comments?

"You have a group of 10-15 prospective students...you go on a tour and then wait in a conference room to get called for the interview. In this room, you watch a movie on Erie, learn about LECOM, and have a presentation on financial aid. Once you get called, you are escorted by one of the interviewers to the room. Here you sit in front of them and they simply talk to you for about 25 minutes. My interviewers seemed sincere and were jovial during the interview. After everyone in the group has gone, you eat (free lunch) with the students in the group and 1st and 2nd year med. students (if you so choose)." Report Response
