What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were very frank, friendly, and informative. They answered my specific questions about the new campus, which was very helpful. After being accepted, I called the Bradenton office to ask about more details. Dr. --- kindly returned my call and gave me more information. Some of other interviewees were very mature and extremely friendly. It would be nice to study with them in the coming year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No discount on the tuition fees for Florida residents... They had little info of Bradenton campus except the interviewers. Also somebody from the admission office sounded too harsh on the $1500 deposit and acceptance to PBL pathway. I think it was not what she said but how she said. I didn't think it was a good idea to interview some while others were listening to financial aids or watching the Erie video. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The second year students spent a couple of months only for the COMPLEX I preparation to make sure the good results. The different pathways are just different learning styles and no single pathway gave the negative outcome when they took COMPLEX I. Some student told us that the prosection is beneficial unless you want to become a surgeon. When she was a freshman, they still did disections, and she had to spend a long time in just taking out fats. They offer a summer session for disections if you want to learn more, but it is not free. They also offer summer courses for OMM, and in this case school pays for it. In terms of OMM, LECOM takes it seriously but doesn't impose you if you are not interested in it. The result of COMPLEX I for most students was excellent so far in anatomy and pretty bad in pharmacology (they said they were working on it). They expect a plenty of rotation sites around the new campus so students in Florida don't have to move to other states during the 3rd and 4th years. They also expect more housing coming up around the new campus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everything was pretty much as I expected. There was no tricky question. I was a little nervous only because I am very new in the US and not totally fluent in English. I am accepted and chose to study at Bradenton. There are many uncertainties about the new campus, and I am hoping the program will have good qualities. The main reason I chose LECOM is the location--very close to my home, and, what a nice environment!--and the fact they seem to offer a type of DO program I've been looking for. There was another DO program I was accepted to and I really liked, but it is in north, and I just didn't want to move too far." Report Response
