What impressed you positively?

"The town. I like the size of the town...I realize that it is cold there most of the year. However, there are some very nice indoor gyms where you can entertain yourself during the cold season ...there are plenty of places to go shopping and a lot of nice restaurants. Lots of good rotation sites, high pass rates on the COMLEX, lots of students on military scholarhips. Additionally, the cost of living is really cheap there. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall a very good experience. They were prepared and organized. The food was just fine in the cafeteria and the interviewers were generally concerned with my application. They had a list of questions that they ask each interviewee, however they did ask me specific questions about my file. The town was nice and there are plenty of things to do there. The video that was shown during down time was very informative and did an excellent job of selling Erie. Additionally they are opening a new campus in Brandeton, Florida which is near Tampa and it is an awesome facility. I have been on several interviews and this school was very impressive. After reading the previous postings I was considering not going to the interview... I am glad that I did...from my experiences at the interview and with talking to other students it appears that LECOM is producing some very competent physicians. I believe that the Bradenton campus is going to be very impressive and that the students there will have a excellent opportunities." Report Response
