What are your general comments?

"The Previous SDN comments and questions were spot on. To clarify, you and 20+ candidates would be interviewed that day. LECOM interviews via group interviews that last about an hour and a 2 - on - 1 (where two faculty members interview you) that lasts about 8-10 mins. Facility is really nice though there's not much to do outside of campus. Strict but cheap (financially) private school with great stats if interested in primary care. Research is a bit scarce compared to other schools. Interview day is very relaxed, never had a group interview before but it's pretty easy when everyone contributes to the conversation. Individual interview is just two questions without the possibility to ask questions unless in the larger group - try to be as personal as possible here because you don't have the opportunity any other time in the day."
