What was the most difficult question?

"None really..." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I prepared by reading the feedback questions and doing a run through by writing down the main point that I wanted to make in my answers. They asked exactly what I found on the feedback... I was surprised by this actually. Felt good that I didn't fall flat on answering what they asked!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was so nice! The students really liked the school, they had a lot of pride in the unique program. Also, they have 100% pass on their board exams... They work fast in giving acceptances. They told us we would know in 5 days of the interview!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Prosected cadavers... The students told us that this was actually a good thing because dissecting takes up your study time. Also, no food or even bottled water on campus! You have to dress up everyday... There are cameras everywhere! Also, the library was only open until 11pm, and it was just one giant room, on one level, and no group rooms..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't realize that PBL was the only form of "classes" you would get at LECOM. I thought PBL was in addition to some classes. Although I could see the benefits of PBL, I still thought that it was a little too randomly done. There was really no method to the chapters you would study, you just pick a chapter in all of your different subject books and start reading. Then next week it would be a different thing you would read about. It just wasn't my cup of tea..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I never applied to LECOM in the past because I knew that they had some quirky rules. I think after going to the interview, I just didn't come out feeling that this place was a good fit for me..." Report Response
