What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were nice, fairly technologically oriented. They will be moving half the staff for the new FL campus from PA. The head of the PBL program will be running Bradenton." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Snow, snow, snow, snow, ice, snow. Dress code (Sieg Heil!). Cameras that are everywhere. Fortunately, I was accepted to the Bradenton campus (I didn't even consider Erie for a second). The Bradenton campus is quite nice, in a good area (though next to a high school). I visited down there and took some pics and walked around (which I would suggest to anybody considering the campus). I still don't like the dress code, but I will probably bend the rules a bit. :> Another thing that caught my attention is that one of the students told us that the school was adding extra board review course because the pass rate was not as high as most schools (couple points lower on average). They never told us the actual pass rate. Oh, and finally, the food plain sucks (lets hope they work on that for the new school)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That Erie is a damn cold place. I mean DAMN cold. I'm from Florida, and I have a very high tolerance for cold as far as Floridians go, but Erie was too much for me. Its too bad they can't interview for the Bradenton campus in Florida, but they probably will in the future. Also, the FL school will be starting a month after the Erie school because of the construction. They say that they will make up some of the time, but it is likely that the first year in FL won't be as long as the PA school. Also, the FL school is not as small as it seems in the pics (its actually three stories)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was very pleasant. I had an admissions staff member and an MD of all people. I had to very diplomatically say that I went the DO route because I thought that most MD's are jerks (obviously not in those words and he must have thought along the same lines to be teaching at a DO school). The airport is TINY. Reminds me of the Daytona Beach Regional Airport of 20 years ago. At all of the gates except 1 or 2, you walk out to the plane." Report Response
