What impressed you positively?

"The group that I interviewed with were all from such a wide variety of backgrounds. The admissions committee seems truly interested in the whole person, not just a score or a grade. They are looking for people that can handle the independence and format of the learning style while enhancing the group interaction. The students are happy, the faculty are very supportive, and the facilities are fantastic. The frequent negative reviews on this site point out the crucial difference at LECOM-B. This is not a hand-holding, traditional medical curriculum. If you need that, apply to a school that offers it. If you cannot handle the reading and the independent study, you should not even apply here, much less accept an interview just to bash the program. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not too much, really. I was concerned about the rotations/having to travel all over, but it's not uncommon to stay in the Tampa/St. Pete area for the full time of studies. At least that's what the current students said. " Report Response
