What impressed you positively?

"How friendly the staff was and their willingness to get to know you. Also, Dr. K explained that the PBL style of learning makes us more competitive as clinicians and board scores are higher. In Erie, PBL is highly competitive to get into. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"PBL allows for a flexible schedule with teachers more willing to assist the students because there is very little lecture time (only a few classes are lecture based). Also, because the anatomy lab is run by prosection (no dissection during lab), students who do well can be on the prosection team and get paid for it. " Report Response
