What impressed you positively?

"That it was a modernized building. Wireless access and laptop access everywhere." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dress code, no food in classrooms, sterile environment, cafeteria was not so much so as it was a sales point for brought in food. Also the students did not seem happy or positive in any way. Our student guide was nice but a little non enthuasic about being there. The biggest for me was the fact first year students did NOT get to cut in anatomy but only the second years did. First years get to observe the previously cut body." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Dreary Erie is right. It is a typical, a bit run down, northern town. It was slightly grey outside and the admissions people said " isn't it a great day today?" I come from Florida, Tennessee, and Califorina where there is blue skies a lot. This made me cring thinking of the "normal" weather there and the 170 inches of snow. OY" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was not the school for me. The staff was friendly but when the best thing about the area you can say is that it is 1.5 hours to buffalo, 2 to pittsburgh, and 1.5 to cleveland thats a sad state to me. The airport had 3!!! terminals. I flew in on a prop plane if that gives you an ideal on the size of the airport. The different pathways were kind of cool but if you are interested in Sarasota for thier new branch campus you must do PBL. The school was clean but it seemed a bit to sterile and rule based for me. Some people thrive in this, not me. " Report Response
