What impressed you negatively?

"The whole school runs like an office building. All food and drinks (including water) are banned on campus except in the cafeteria. They also monitor your internet, and said "Don't spend time looking at anything you wouldn't like to explain to the Dean." There is a very strict dress code of slacks, shirt, tie, recently shaven, and combed hair. They also require you to pay a very large, non-refundable deposit to reserve a seat within a month of your acceptance." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be an MMI" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It seems that LECOM-B produces some stelar graduates, but at the cost of being very controlling of the students. The whole administration gave a strong vibe of "My way or the highway," albeit that their way seems to produce competitive grads. I would consider attending, but am by no means completely sold."
