What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
