What are your general comments?

"The overall experience at LECOM-bradenton was a very mixed one. The admissions staff are excellent and very friendly, yet some of the faculty and the dean that came and spoke to us seemed a bit arrogant. They made it sound like PBL is only for the strong, smart, and superior students. I completely disagree. PBL is an excellent curriculum if it incorporates the values of teamwork and working together. It seemed they wanted the complete opposite. They wanted you to read on your own 10 hours a day by yourself and you were basically teaching yourself. The faculty never expressed an open door policy and gave very little info. on the 3rd and 4th year rotations. All they talked about was PBL for the first two years. Aditionally, the students that came and talked to us were nice but they didn't seem too happy and all they talked about was PBL. There are other factors that need to be addressed besides just the first two years of the curriculum I think. It seemed everyone was just out to sell the PBL curriculum and not the school. Overall i got an EErie feeling there! " Report Response
