What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness of the staff and the pre-interview interactions and discussions." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was surprised that family was not particularly welcome. When I arrived at 7:45 with my husband, they had him go sit in the cafe until everything was over. The only thing he was welcome to participate in was the tour at the end (about 12:45). So my husband just left and came back around noon. I don't know about you, but my husband's input into where I go to medical school is a factor on my choice. The other school I interviewed at was very encouraging of family to come along for the day of the interview and the only time we were apart was for the 20-30 minutes I was in my interview." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"See what negatively impressed me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I hate interviewing, because I hate telling people ''what they want to hear'', but this wasn't too bad. I found out later that the faculty I had for my interview don't have the best reputations on campus, but they still seemed friendly. The students and graduates of LECOM I had spoke with seemed surprised that the interviewers I had were nice. I don't know if that is good or bad. Over and over you read in these feedbacks that the faculty and staff are nice, I wonder if they just put on a show for interview day. But I don't know. I have actually spent quite a bit of time up there and there are quite a few genuinely nice people there. " Report Response
