What impressed you positively?

"They have great stats (board scores & residency match), also sounds like you can do rotations (3rd & 4th year) in a variety of places, so you don't have to live in Erie for all 4 years if you don't want to. I also like their different pathways and if I went there I would hope to do the PBL pathway." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Their over-emphasis on professionalism. I read some comments about this before going and thought maybe it just wasn't a good fit for those people, but now I think they may be right. I don't mind the professional dress code, but they don't allow food or drinks anywhere outside of the cafeteria. That means no WATER during class or in the library!" Report Response

"A little more about Erie, so I could better answer the why Erie question." Report Response

What are your general comments?
