What are your general comments?

"This interview is at LECOM-Bradenton, not LECOM in Pennsylvania so be careful when reading the interview feedback on this site. There is a special "surprise" called a case study that they will give you to read and analyze. You'll be asked to summarize it and if you give a satisfactory summary they might have to ask you questions... like a possible diagnose or interpretation of the lab results/tests. If you do a good job and they are happy with what you have to say then they go on to the next interview question. Our case study was on Obesity in Women (w/ link to heart disease and diabetes type II). The time they take to accept/reject you varies... some people get accepted a week later, some interviewed in September and are still waiting, and some get a letter a month later." Report Response
