What was the most interesting question?

"Earlier during the day, an admissions staff member had given us a scientific article to read on the benefits of increasing HDL.

It wasn't hard, but I thought that it was a little strange that they would test our memorization skills during the interview. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I liked their early clinical experience opportunities. It was nice that they gave students a choice of learning style- 3 different pathways.I thought that the school had a very polished feel and the facilities were rather nice. Also, the students were really nice and friendly. The faculty were also very warm to me. It seemed that the students were really involved with the community, which I think is great. Erie is a much larger city than I had expected. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The con of the 3 separate learning pathways is that once you pick one and they start teaching the sections separately, it seems that you are locked into that pathway regardless of whether you are happy with your choice or not.During the tour, we did not get to see the anatomy lab, which was sort of a bummer. I was NOT down with no food or drink policy (except in the cafeteria). I thought that was a little militant. I had been approached by a staff member to throw my drink away when I was in the lobby area so I know that the policy is enforced. I wasn't too happy with the dress code either although the students appeared very professional. There was some lack of available information from the admissions staff. Erie is pretty cold too!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a really pleasant experience with LECOM. The students and faculty are super friendly and open and that made up for a lot of the cons that I listed. Personally, I could take the dress code, but I couldn't take the no food or drink policy... I would just keel over if I didn't have my morning cup o' joe everyday!" Report Response
