What are your general comments?

"The whole day is pretty well organized and structured. Your group of about 10 starts a tour of the campus/building at about 8am. The tour ends in a conference room where the guide talkes about the learning pathways and school policies. This time is very informal and you're free to ask whatever questions you have. The guide isn't at all involved in the decision process. At 9:15 interviews start. There are three panels consisting of three interviewers. You know ahead of time which panel will be interviewing you, but you don't know the order. Mine wasn't alphabeticle. One of the interviewers comes to get you and takes you to a room where the other two are waiting. If you do your homework the actual interview isn't bad at all. The panel has sheets in front of them, and just go down a standardized list of questions, each person taking a turn asking. Other then the questions listed I had: Why DO? Describe a leadership role? Can you handle stress of med-school? What led you to want to be a Dr? They also ask you to summarize a short article that you read in the conference room. Mine was about gene therapy. After the interview you hear a presentation concerning financial aid. Then it's off to the cafeteria for a free lunch and time to talk with a couple of current students. Our group was done at 12:30. All in all it was a pretty good and unstressful day. Some of the questions asked of other interviewees weren't asked of me, but they are all posted by others who have been to LECOM. My best advice is to research and write down all the questions posted and think about each one. Being prepared for the questions makes a huge difference. One question that was asked of someone that I hadn't seen before was "what 3 people, living or dead (only one relateve) would you invite over for dinner"? Good luck. Green912" Report Response
