What was the most interesting question?

"If you read through a few of these reviews there really is nothing that will surprise you. For the most part the interviewers have a worksheet that they read their questions from so everyone gets the same questions more or less. Their main focus is to see if you will do well with the PBL program." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"see above" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"-Talked to medical students, doctors, and nurses -Read over the feedback info here -Read over potential questions and wrote down my answers" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone is SO enthusiastic about the school and PBL. What also impressed me was that we were told that this year the most prostegious neuro residency in the US went to a LECOM PBL student this year, the first time in history it went to a DO! As a 2nd year student you are able to dissect cadavers (see answer to negative impressions)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"As you may have already read, as a 1st year you do not dissect a cadaver. The cadavers are already dissected for you so all you do is poke around at them and/or use a computer module (the module complements the cadaver). HOWEVER, as a 2nd year you can volunteer to be one of the people that dissects the cadavers for the 1st year students. As someone that is interested in surgery I find this exciting because the feel of cutting through tissue can only be learned through direct firsthand experience." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The campus is rather small. However this is understandable given that because of the style of learning (PBL)you spend most of your time at home or with your group members brainstorming over your cases." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First they go over their PBL program pretty extensively. Then they hold interviews. Then you get a tour of the campus and then have lunch with medical students. Next there is a discussion about financial aid. The day concludes with a realtor explaining the area and how to contact her (there is no on-campus housing for students)" Report Response
