What impressed you negatively?

"-One of my interviewers was not friendly at all. I think she disliked me because I spoke to her on the phone when LECOM lost my application and I was upset. I guess she already had a negative impression of me. -Mandatory attendance and dress code...it's not high school anymore! -I heard some pretty negative things from people who go to LECOM, like how the Dean came into lecture one day just to yell at them. -Erie is kind of a depressing town. It's snowy and cold and the student who ate lunch with us said they hardly ever plow the roads because the city is broke. -Research opportunities are limited. " Report Response
