"Mock interview with a physician, used SDN interview feedback to come up with examples before the interview, read as many pages as possible on the LECOM website, and re-read the DO handbook from AACOM." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Their PBL program and the cost of education and housing is extremely affordable." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No drinks/food allowed outside caf (which is very small), the library is really small, no cadaver lab for PBL (but you can use the lab after hours), dress code would be a pain with how much it snows there. The man at the front desk at my hotel told me that Erie got something like 150 ft of snow?!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"At 1pm, you can participate in a mock PBL session that is supposed to last until 2, but in my session, it lasted until about 2:25." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Erie has everything a person needs (malls, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, recreation) but the school itself is pretty small. It's just one building with 5 floors and you share it with pharmacy students. On the flip side though, if money is tight, this school would be a very good choice. If they sell you on PBL, you can go to Seton Hill in Greensburg, PA where they will matriculate 100 PBL students starting this fall (as of now, PBL in Erie is full)." Report Response
