What are your general comments?

"This was my first medical school interview ever, and i'm so glad that it was at LECOM Bradenton. Everyone was very laid back, and the admissions staff and faculty are all very friendly and student-centered. Their emphasis is of course on PBL, so definitely read up on that before going to interview so that you can field questions if they ask. Also, they give an article to read and they only give you 10 minutes to read it, then they ask you to summarize it in the interview. In the interview when they asked the questions, I had trouble remembering one of the big long terms, and they said "don't worry about terms" so my hint would be, just focus on the main idea-- they just want to see if you learned something. Oh- and dress code- at the school they actually enforce a dress code for the students- shirt and tie and at least khakis for guys, and a blouse and nice slacks/skirt for the girls, so definitely for the interview- don't show up in anything less. Also, BE EARLY. Find the school the night before because there is construction going on- one of the students was about 10 minutes late, and that is a horrible first impression." Report Response
