What was the most difficult question?

"Again, all pretty standard. All the questions are on SDN - pretty much they have a checklist that you can see and they ask you them one by one." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read the LECOM site, this site, some stuff about osteopathy." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How the school pays for COMLEX prep for all students. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"40% of students are married and they have a spouse support group! I was one of two undergrads in my interview group (and most LECOM students are in their upper 20s it seemed.) No research, cadavers are already dissected, and the school is so new that it does not have a reputation yet. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Erie really isn't that bad." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview itself is not stressful...honestly, they have a sheet that they ask you questions directly from - nothing out of the ordinary. My interviewers were really nice and I had something strange in common with the one. Even though I got in here I just don't think it's a good fit for me and I didn't get a good vibe when I was there - it seemed like most people were not happy and went to LECOM as a last resort. " Report Response
