What are your general comments?

"In all I would have to say that the whole interview and application process experienced was both eye opening and educational. I must say though that as I was preparing for this endeavor I utilized and valued some opinions which I was exposed to on this public forum (SDN). In addition I must say that having been exposed to interview opportunities at both MD and DO schools I chose LECOM due to a wide range of factors up to and including demo and geo-graphics...every school I was exposed to had pro's and con's depending on your medical school expectations. However, being a health care professional already (RN, ICU/ER), who has chosen to always practice in educational institutions, I have come to the conclusion that a medical school education is like that of any other formal instructional institution and the value and worth come from within the student theselves...not the facilities...not the weather...not the night life...not the residency opportunites...or the networking availabilities. Ultimately we are there to get a quality education for the benefit of our future pateints, not the glorification of a particular institution...based on it's name's sake or tradition of perceived excellence. I was accepted to LECOM and have decided to attend...It was not my only option...it was just the best option for me at this time...it was not MD vs DO...North vs South...East vs West...It was about the best decision and fit for me now and for the next four years...Some of the "best" can produce the worst...and some of the "worst" can produce the best. So choose wisely...and hope and pray you chose correctly..." Report Response
