What impressed you positively?

"The people at the school. Admissions staff was great, really outgoing and fun. Professor gave us a tour which was impressive that he would take the time out to give a bunch of interviewees the time of day. I think overall great ppl at this school. I also think they prepare you for the boards. The professors seem to care how the students do. They monitor your performance which is great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Its only one building, but I dont think its that big of a deal. Not sure how strong are there residencies. They didnt really tell us what kind of residencies the students have done. THey told us the hospitals they were affiliated with, but not much info about the kind of residencies." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Better than I expected. I heard the school was only one building but it seems state of the art and modern feeling. The people seemd to care. One major plus was the cheap tuition and very low cost of living. We were told that students cannot take food anywhere in the building outside of the cafeteria, but that was so they didnt have to spend more moeny on cleaning and maintenance staff and that really helps with bringing the tuition down...so that was something that impressed me. Also, a lot of ppl on SDN complain about the location of Erie. The winter sucks and its not exactly a major social scene but they do have downtown and there are lot of restaurants, and I talk to a student and they all go out once a week to a bar after exams. I also found out in the summer Erie is a tourist attraction because the weather is great and people go to the beaches and there are lots of festivals in the summer. So I dont think the location is as bad as people have made it out to be, and the students also mentioned that the crime rate is very low and some ppl even leave their doors unlocked...so overall I wouldnt mind coming here, my only concern is the residencies."
