What impressed you positively?

"The efficiency of the building and curriculum. It looks just like my High School, and makes you feel less intimidated. Also, the fact that we can rotate at a bunch of places was really cool. Finally, the students' meeting with us was really awesome. The students were so enthusiastic, so relaxed, and quite knowledgable, that I was extremely impressed and knew that LECOM-Bradenton was doing something right. Most students at other med schools complain or look really tired or look like they don't have any friends; this school was very different, and the PBL seems to be the reason why. The PBL makes you have a social life at school, during class, and out of class at night. The Library was very spacious and has a nice view of the lake right in front of the school, appropriately named lake erie! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"LECOM-Bradenton was really awesome! The interview was really fun and we all got along quite well as a group. I got everyone's emails and am keeping in touch with everyone, and I suggest that y'all do the same thing. The teachers at LECOM are really awesome. I learned that they use Prosections and pre-prepared slides so that you don't waste time in Anatomy lab. This is very efficient. I was considering either going to LECOM-Bradenton or Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California, but LECOM-Bradenton is way better! LECOM-Bradenton's PBL curriculum has already proven itself in Erie, and will soon prove itself again in Florida. Western's best professor has even left Western to join LECOM-Bradenton. Think about it. Do you like to learn in lecture from 8-5 every day or would you rather meet in PBL groups 2 hours a day, 3 times a week, and then only 2 times a week your second year? Also, I have heard that the girls at LECOM-Bradenton are very hot! Can't wait for OMM Lab...HOLLA!" Report Response
