"Nothing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I basically knew everything before going in--dress code, attendance policy, school is actually one building, etc. so there were no new discoveries for me. I did find out during my interview that one of my interviewers did his Ph.D. work at my undergraduate university so we talked about that for a little." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First, got to the school and was put in a room filled with all of the other people being interviewed. We waited until everyone showed up (11 total) and then we moved to the upstairs conference room. We then talked to Elaine Morse (lady you had to call in to when you accepted your interview) and she was asking all of us random questions to help us feel more at ease. We filled out some paper work while waiting for the interviews to start. We had to pick between the three pathways and sign our name. She also passed out an article for us to read and summarize at the time of our interview. It was very straight forward and is NOT worth stressing about. The interviews started late by about half hour. I was the first interview up to bat which was a plus because I could relax afterwards. I came back from my interview after 30-35 minutes and listened to a wife of a student talk about her husband's experience with LECOM. Also listened to financial aid and housing presentations. After everyone was done interviewing we went down to the cafeteria and sat at different tables with current med students. The med student that was at our table was very honest as well. You probably have read previous posts about the cafeteria food and you can believe what you want. No, it's not going to be a luxurious meal, but it's decent. And the cafeteria lady isn't "evil" either as some other applicant suggested. Once we were done eating, we were free to leave or explore the medical school more." Report Response
