What are your general comments?

"It was very, very, very boring. Seriously, the interviewers stuck to the nine questions like crazy glue- they literally read the questions off their sheets and had spaces to write my answers down as I spoke. I felt that I could have written down the answers myself and mailed the form in- why did I have to come all the way to Erie for that one sheet of questions?? I don't think this interview method is a good way to get to know students- its easy to memorize the kinds of answers they want to hear and spew them out during the interview. I left this interview unchallenged and with a sense that LECOM is too stiff of a school. I got in, but I am probably going to pass." Report Response
