How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN. Looked over my primary and secondary. Researched LECOM's website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The mock PBL session was great: if you're unsure whether PBL is right for you, this session will be very helpful. Dr. Moore is super nice: he seemed genuinely happy that all us interviewees were there and was more than willing to answer any questions we had. Students from LDP and PCSP talking about their experiences was helpful too. The tour of LECOM and Erie was fun - the beaches at Presque Isle are gorgeous!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"How students are not allowed to enter the atrium. Thankfully, our student tour guides sneaked us in, and, especially on a sunny day, the atrium is absolutely beautiful." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How low key the interview would be, and how I shouldn't have been too anxious about it. Although the interviewers will generally keep poker faces, they genuinely want to get to know you." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The 9 questions previously posted on SDN and the article reading exercise are no longer part of the interview. Instead, I had one interview with a three-member interview panel. After awhile, the interview felt more like a conversation. The people of Erie are very friendly. Everyone from my taxi driver to the hotel staff was congratulating me on receiving an interview and were more than willing to tell me about the greatness of Erie. Also, stay at the Residence Inn if you can: if you don't have a car during the trip, they provide free shuttles to LECOM and to the airport." Report Response
