What are your general comments?

"The atmosphere of LECOM is that of a small-town school and they are not afraid to show it; this seems like the kind of place for students who are not keen on huge campuses and thousands of students mingling about. The interview itself was straightforward; my best advice to anyone preparing for an interview at this school is to simply be yourself, be human, be passionate about your future medical career and don't try to be more than you are. This was my strategy and I got accepted. If it worked for me, I don't see why it would not work for others. " Report Response
