Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine is wonderful to offer 3 distinct campuses with unique programs at each. At Seton Hill's campus, I am fortunate to learn not solely in a didactic/lecture format, but the core of our sciences curriculum stems from case files designed to simulate ER, Primary Care, or Specialist visits. It allows us to work on our differential, research, laboratory, and diagnostic abilities and skills. This problem based method, in my opinion, will not only provide a useful tool to review for our Boards certifications (COMLEX), but also for future practice. As a future Osteopath, I recommend osteopathic schooling over allopathic schooling for the added anatomy and physiology rigor. I have gained a better understanding of body mechanics and treatments than I believe I would at an allopathic school. The faculty as a whole is supportive, experienced, and accommodating. There are downsides, as there are to any school, but those are shrouded by the strong education I am receiving.

LECOM is a wonderful school. The staff are not only kind but very helpful. They truly are there to help the students succeed. The enrollment process is simple and straightforward. The classes are very interesting but very fast paced. And the grading is also very fair.

LECOM is a great Medical School. The tuition is reasonable and the Problem Based Learning is great. I couldn't imagine sitting in a lecture hall for the first 2 years, PBL was perfect for me.

My graduate program strongly emphasizes an open door policy with their professors and wants to ensure our success as future health professionals. There are many clubs and organizations to get involved in, specific to each program of study, and my graduate program strongly supports involvement in the community. Students go out and serve the community in various ways whether it's doing health screenings in public places or volunteering.

I attend LECOM's Bradenton campus, located in Bradenton, FL. I am very pleased with my decision of attending LECOM's pharmacy program. In my opinion, the academic staff that is employed there are beyond great. The professors are knowledgeable in their field of study, they provide support , encouragement, and motivation to succeed in the pharmacy field. The campus itself is not large, consisting of one main building shared by medical and pharmacy students. Two lecture halls, accommodating over 150 students comfortably. The security staff is adequate, security systems are modern, with multiple surveillance cameras throughout the school's campus and parking lots. The student affairs office staff are easy to work alongside with and are always available to answer any questions. I like the small school setting, particularly because I have a physical limitation. The amount of course workload is sufficient. At LECOM, due to the curriculum and the course workload, one learns the concept of "time management", as well as good study habits, both essential in order to succeed in this field. Many student associations are available to the student, throughout all four years (or three years if attending Erie Pennsylvania's accelerated program). Student rotations are well organized. Initially, I was reluctant with the idea of a professional dress code being enforced, but after the 1st week, it was second nature, and I wouldn't even think about having to wear a tie, or shoes. Dressing professional helps greatly when attending rotations. Preceptors are pleased with the appearance of the students, and people in general will take you more seriously,as well as treat you with the upmost respect. Overall, I can't really think of negative things to say about the school, I enjoy attending it and am looking forward to being a graduate in 2018, and representing the school with pride.

I am completely loving the challenge of pharmacy school, as it makes me feel proud to be part of a rigorous yet esteemed program. But the cost often gets overwhelming. Housing is expensive in Florida, and being a commuter with a toll road only compounds an economic situation. And there are next to no options as far as financial aid, including no grants. In the end it will undoubtedly be worth it, I just have to endure the road to get there.

Degree: Dentistry

Pros: I do not need to go to traditional lectures as much as other dental school. I can pace myself to catch up with the school Cons: There are nothing fun to do around the area, but it helps you to concentrate on what you do

There was no option to select "D.O." degree program, but M.D. is comparable; same qualifications and credentials, but DO requires 100+ hours of training in osteopathic manipulative treatment/medicine. The Problem-Based Learning curriculum is very productive and forces students to develop inter-personal skills while simultaneously learning the basic, pre-clinical sciences. Bradenton is an up-and-coming area with vast development. The students and faculty are very friendly and willing to help.

I feel my school is very esteemed in the education process, and most of the faculty I've met so far seem to care about students' actual success. My cons would be that as far as financially, "you're pretty much on your own". There are really no alternatives as far as financial aid, options are very limited. I drastically find myself overwhelmed.
