How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN,Career Services at my school, friends" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"During lunch, we had two very frank 2nd yr med students who told us exactly what to expect at LECOM. They answered my questions honestly. I like the fact that they have three learning pathways and they start patient contact early (first year second semester). LECOM's really big on community service. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They should have had a mock session of each of the three learning pathways. You dont dissect first year, you prosect. The dress code-- but the second years pointed out that this was to our benefit when we start residencies and rotations.The cafeteria lady was rude. The tour was conducted by a staff member and she practically read of the sheet. Ther gym and hours are pathetic. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It really is in the middle of nowhere. LECOM is a beautiful "campus". It's jsut one building. Not a very diverse town. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"To every con, I seem to justify it with a pro probablly evident in my entry. This was my first interview and the kids I interviewd with were awesome. When the first interviewer came in, he remarked, "This is a smiling bunch of kids." I think they observe your behavior with each other. Elaine Morris provided a lot of info about LECOM and the town itself. Pay attention even if your nervous about the interiew so you can ask the panel questions about what you heard. I dont know what to compare this expereince to given I haven't had any others yet. " Report Response
