"how nice the school is, how friendly everyone was, how professional it was" More from this Member | Report Response

"great school and friendly staff" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything is brand new." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school environment. Everyone there are very nice. PharmD students were there to chat and answered questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"3 year program. Staff was really professional and made you feel at ease." More from this Member | Report Response

"The faculty was very welcoming and enthusiastic. I liked the interview because it wasn't too long. I had some flight problems due to the snow and had no problem coming into the interview late." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour and the orientation were great and all of them had excellent knowledge of what they were talking. That was great." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities looked very new and well maintained. The faculty was extremely nice and made the whole process very comfortable. Also, you can choose where you do your rotations (can go out of state if you like)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Bradenton is a beautiful area. Information given was helpful, ie financial aid, description of program." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location of LECOM Erie is fantastic for me. Interview was conducted by phone for LECOM Erie. She called right on time and asked if it was a good time for the interview. Then got right down to the business at hand. She did repeated questions if you requested her to. " More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"interviewer sounds friendly on the phone. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Phone interview and Prof. was very easy to talk to." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Admission staff and Airport-like security!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that LECOM's buildings are scattered all over Erie, so when you pull up to the front of the pharmacy one, you find yourself wondering if you're really at the correct place because all you see is one decrepit looking building. Upon entrance, you have to walk through a metal detector...which makes me wonder if that's really necessary (is the city not safe?) Everything you'll need is in the building (library, food, classes etc.), which is a plus to stay away from the snow, but there's also not a lot of natural lighting coming in. (made me feel claustrophobic). Electronic textbooks are provided with your tuition BUT apparently, you won't be able to keep them forever. It's also true that they have a strict business casual uniform policy and no food and water in the classroom policy. The majority of the exams are online too so if your laptop randomly malfunctions on test day, you're screwed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Perhaps, b/c the interview occurred near the end of the application cycle, the interviewers I had seemed like they were bored. One was yawning in the middle of the interview. The students didn't seem very euthusiastic about the school when they were doing the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the two people interviewing us acted very bored the entire time and did not seem to think any of our answers were good enough, even had a somewhat heated debate with one of the others being interviewed" More from this Member | Report Response

"The whole building seemed very...sterile." More from this Member | Report Response

"the weather" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location was kinda lame. It was snowing really badly and there didn't seem like there was much to do." More from this Member | Report Response

"No lunch provided ;)" More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot. They only give you 750 hours of experience, you need to find the rest totally on your own. Cannot really fulfill the 750 hours during the semesters because the workload is so intense. The Interview itself was very intense - many many questions. Cannot take drinks, even water, basically anywhere except the cafeteria. Mandatory attendence...I realize it's pharmacy school, and it's expected you go to class everyday - but what if you are sick? They still require you to go - even if you are contageous. " More from this Member | Report Response

"A lot. When you graduate you only have 750 hrs of experientials, you need 1500 to sit for the boards in PA, so you would have to get another 750 hrs on your own after you graduate(or work through the school year). You have to set up your own experientals. They do not do any of it for you. Professors do not have an open door policy. If they are not on campus teaching a class, they are usually not on campus. Attendance is mandatory. Talking with the student ambassador, got the feeling that the pharmacy program was an after thought as LECOM started as a DO school and all the top people at the school are DOs. Student ambassador confirmed that the pharmacy program is treated like a red-headed step child." More from this Member | Report Response

"that you cannot bring in drinks into lecture halls." More from this Member | Report Response

"the whole school is one building!" More from this Member | Report Response

"middle of nowhere but had a home feeling" More from this Member | Report Response

"None" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is isolated, my whole drive there I didn't see anything stores or pharmacies. " More from this Member | Report Response

"At first, because Erie is such a small town I thought it wouldn't be very fun there. But thanks to it being so small, the cost of living is cheap! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The city of Erie seemed very poor and run down. Though I did not explore the whole city so my poor perception of the area may be due to the location of my hotel." More from this Member | Report Response

"The program is so new that it is hard to tell how well it is doing and how well it will do in the future." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview for me was very non-interactive. She asked the questions and I simply filled in the silence with an answer. It was simply not possible to gauge my performance during/after the interview. Some answers were cut short and she did race through the standard school policy information at the end of the interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"no negative impression during interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a phone interview. i was scheduled to have an interview not w/ a faculty, but w/ a admin staff. i waited by the phone for 3 hours & no show. i had to call several times b/f i finally got the hold of him to remind him that i had an interview w/ him on that day & at that time. he apologized profusely for forgetting it. anyway, 1 month later,i received the rejection letter from this school. nice, eh?" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems like there's nothing to do in erie but study. The weather is freezing." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The essay questions" More from this Member | Report Response

"You DON'T need to wear snowshoes or a snow jacket, even if there was a just a snowstorm a few days ago because they clear up the snow really fast from the school's walkway." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing. The agenda was sent to me ahead of the interview so i know what to expect for the day. I like knowing what is ahead so this is perfect." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I felt prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"that it was a group interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"How easy it is to get around in Erie; I would have relaxed more." More from this Member | Report Response

"if i got accepted...lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything was pretty much what was expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"none." More from this Member | Report Response

"Whether I got in." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Erie INTL airport is smmmallll. There is one baggage claim. It makes things alot simpler. I wouldn't have stressed out so much!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"There are alligators in the pond out back." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt fairly prepared for the interview, though you can always be more prepared if you have a good idea of what questions might be asked. There were 2 or 3 situational type questions. I was somewhat prepared for 1, though the other 1 was pretty similar." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't be nervous. The faculty is very nice and friendly. Just be yourself. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That they would ask tougher questions than institutions that ask you to come down for a visit and get interviewed." More from this Member | Report Response

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"this school has a reputation of being disorganized. after the interview, it was confirmed." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"All in all this was a great experience. To be stressed is normal, but the questions are typical." More from this Member | Report Response

"The admission staff act like they're in high school! If you have been there, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Also, the security upfront when you enter is ridiculous; it's a school not an airport. Tuition is affordable, that's the good part." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the reasons students may want to attend this school is because of the opportunity to do rotations anywhere but that is NO longer true. In an effort to better monitor the quality of the rotations, the school will only allow rotations within a ~ 200-mile radius of the campus. Also, I asked a couple students why they chose this school. Many said it was either location, a fast way to get a PharmD, or the cheap price. That's pretty much it. Also, there's literally not much to do around here." More from this Member | Report Response

"I feel like one-on-one interviews are more intimate and allows an applicant to fully express themself better than a group interview. The applicant who is last to answer the question may get overshadow by the applicant who gets to answer the question first. For certain questions, there is only that much you can say to impress. Also, during one-on-one interviews, the applicant can bring more personal points and aspects of their background to the interviewer without other interviewees hearing about it as well." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think it was rude for one of the people who interviewed our group to act like that." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has some pretty odd rules for college (attendance is taken, no water bottles, students can't go into their main entrance), but overall I was impressed after actually visiting the school. The group interview wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. Prepping the most commonly asked questions I found on SDN really helped me relax." More from this Member | Report Response

"relax, it's not as scary as it feels!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a closed file interview but when they make the decision they will take everything into consideration so if you have anything to explain then you should bring it up because the interviewers don't know about any possible low gpa's, pcat scores, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"I got accepted, but was so unimpressed that there is no way I would go there. Not only that, I would recommend to stay away from this school if you get in *anywhere* else." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good school. They made you feel less nervous. " More from this Member | Report Response

"be knowledgeable of pharmacy they want someone who knows what they are getting in to" More from this Member | Report Response

"I thought it went very well. Everyone was very friendly" More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a one hour orientation with the dean followed by the interview. After the interview, we took a tour of the campus and then did the group activity. When both groups were finished discussing the article they made us read, we ate lunch and then the dean dismissed us. Overall it was a good interview experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very enjoyable, however if you travel from another state, be sure to get some rest, I had a major headache (not used sitting on the airplane for so many hours)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has great facilities and friendly staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"I live in TX. All the TX schools have later deadlines, later interviews..but bc LECOM gave me my interview and acceptance letter so fast, I didn't have to worry so much! " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was great and the two faculity members tried to help us stay away from the interview mood and they were easy on candidates. We were only 8 applicants on that day and they do it this way twice a week. Everything was on time and very well organized. I want to thank the admission counselor Camille for her great job to help us not to be stressed the whole time. The only time she was not with us was on the 25 minute interview. I heard there was another interviewer who was weird on that day. Other than that Every one of us was happy when we left the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All of the faculty and students that I met were extremely nice. The day started with a brief tour of the school, then we were given a good rundown of the curriculum and cost of attendance/financial aid. Afterwards, we were interviewed individually and those who were waiting had a chance to talk with current students who were nice and helpful. Finally, we all ate lunch with a couple of students and then were on our way. I am glad I attended this interview...although I was not too impressed with the city, I feel that I could tough it out for 3 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The one on one interview was great. My interviewer was a professor. Very comfortable, conversational interview with Q&A from both sides. The group activity was difficult. We read an article and then discussed it while an admissions staff member observed. I think we all felt like we had to say something and it was a fairly unnatural discussion." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt fairly prepared for the phone interview and even calm before the call. Though when the questions started and I started to feel that the interview was going to be a very non-interactive interview I started to feel anxiety, which I normally never feel. Normally, I am fairly well spoken, though I felt this interview was certainly not a shining moment. I personally thought my performance was mediocre overall with some redeeming quality answers throughout the interview and towards the end. In the end, it all worked out. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a phone interview and the interviewer tried to make me less nervous. All questions were drawn from introduction so be prepared for that introduction. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience. The interviewer was awsome. The interview seemed like a conversation. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very laid back going in because I didnt expect the interview to be so strict and to the point. Be prepared to take your time on the tough questions and dont rush through it. That could have been my mistake." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interesting aspect to my LECOM interview was that it was a phone interview. They have offered me multiple days to come and visit the campus, but since I live across the country I won't travel until I decide whether or not I want to go there. So, it was convenient for me to have a phone interview - and was much less stressful. However, the one downfall to the phone interview format was that it was uncomfortable because you don't know how the interviewer is reacting because you don't see his/her body language. Therefore, it was hard for me to gauge how I was doing - I wish I could have at least looked into someone's eyes. Another good aspect to the interview was that the doctor from LECOM was extremely friendly and easy to talk to - his character made it easy to talk to a stranger you couldn't even see."

"it should be a stress-free interview since it's phone interview. However, i'm not so good on the phone, so it's a draw back for me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"it was okey. personally, i think i'll do better if it was not a phone interview. it's easier to make a positive impression if it was a tete-a-tete interview for me. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I wasn't so sure of how the interview went because the interviewer (Dr. Weimar) did most of the talking but I got my acceptance call 4 days later! :)" More from this Member | Report Response
