What impressed you positively?

"Erie is so beautiful! Any store you might ever need is on one street (Peach Street). They have a great downtown area and the peninsula on Lake Erie sounds like it is a great place to spend time in the summer. Wish I had more time to visit it!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus is just one building. The students didn't seem too enthusiastic about the school. The building is beautiful but so sterile and the walls are blank. You are required to dress up every day and you must buy a laptop to attend the school. Class is from 8am to 5pm every day if you decide to go that route." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Erie is in the middle of nowhere and is pretty much entirely self-sufficient. Any place you might want to go is 10-15 minutes away." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The doctors who interviewed me and the admissions staff made me feel very comfortable. First we gathered in a room and a doctor and student talked with us. Then we went on a tour of the building. After that, we sat in a room while Elaine Morse from admissions talked to us about the school and the Erie area. During that time we got called out one by one for interviews. Once the interviews were done, we ate lunch and talked to two students in the ISP track. Overall, I thought my interview went extremely well. The three doctors were joking around with me and I felt comfortable talking to them." Report Response
