3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: The local spots are great because Lakewood ranch is a young city. Sarasota and its eclectic locations are close by.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's medical school, so you won't find too many dumb people here. We are all hard-working and don't have time to party much.

Off-Campus Dining: Good restaurants in the area with a variety of ethnic options, most of which don't over-charge and give you a good amount of food. I'll take it!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Decent food for a decent price, I just wish there was more of a variety to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's pretty much impossible to get into the building without your ID, which unlocks the doors. The security guards are always watching as students enter the building and tap in to unlock the door. Also, this part of town has a very low crime rate, so I'm never worried to walk to my car or walk back to my apartment, even at night.

2 College Freshman

Weather: The winter is awful in Erie; there is snow every other day and the temperatures are usually in the teens or 20s. However, the spring and summer is a beautiful time of year here. Erie is an excellent vacation spot during the warmer months. The Presque Isle beaches are superb and there are many parks to go to when it's warm out. Unfortunately, the winter overshadows the warmer months of the year.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have no major issues with getting loans, but I'd like to have more scholarship opportunities here. Too many scholarships are targeted for in-state residents or minorities. It'd be nice to have a religious-affiliated scholarship or even a scholarship open to ANYBODY.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't have any school sports teams, but there are plenty of club teams and intramural teams to participate in. We have a beautiful athletic facility; the basketball court is used by the NBA D-League team in our city too.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Look, medical school is medical school. I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to attend a decent american medical school. This school will prep me well for the board exams next semester and that's what matters most.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I use my own laptop for class, but the computers on campus and the printing service are okay. Luckily, I have my own laser printer in my apartment. The wifi on campus can be a pain sometimes; when the computer is connected, everything is fine, but occasionally my computer won't be able to connect to the wifi when I'm in class.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I'm used to living near a big metropolitan area (I'm from Long Island) so I often feel bored here. Then again, I don't have too much time to go out and explore town since I have a lot of studying to do. I do like the big mall complex near me, and this is not an expensive city to live in. This seems like a nice place to raise a family, especially for those who don't have too much money to spend. The night life is okay but can get boring after a while. I'm sure that there are many hidden gems I have yet to find here.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: LECOM has one main campus in the area, with another building about 20 minutes away. I'm rather surprised they don't offer a shuttle service for students using that facility. Other than that, we don't really need "campus-provided transportation" since most of us live within 5 minutes from the school. My apartment complex is just across the street from the main building and I'm a 2-minute drive to the gym.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have that at our medical school. There are maybe 1 or 2 "fraternities" or societies for those who qualify, but that's not exactly Greek Life. Even if there was Greek Life in medical school, who would have time for that?

4 College Freshman

Academics: Any medical school is going to make its students work hard. If you are having too much fun in medical school, then the faculty isn't doing its job. I rarely go out to the bars, say once a month. However I will go out with friends for a quick lunch or dinner just to get some fresh air.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Every school has its pros and cons; LECOM has more pros than cons in my opinion mainly because it has a decent reputation in the medical community. Some of the departments are absolutely awesome, such as Microbiology and Anatomy, while others are sub-par, especially physiology. There are professors who might have awful powerpoints (too much or too little information) while others really go out of their way to provide students with all of the tools necessary to ace the exams. There is some research at my school, but most of us know little about it; hopefully we'll get some research opportunities along the way. I'd also like to find out about available internships during our summer vacation; it'd be a good boost for me CV. I know that this medical school will prep us well for our board exams next year, that's what matters most!

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Couple bars frequented by students but most do not have time to party any more than once or twice per semester

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Very depressing city to live in.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: One big parking lot for all students and faculty (except for the higher ups who have access to a private underground garage).

College Sophomore

Scholarships: financial aid provided by the school are not available for first year graduate students - only loans from applying through fafsa

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: campus = 5 floor building. require keycard to go through front doors. security personnel is usually always on site. for the most part i feel safe on campus - i don't think any crime were reported since i started school here. although walking through the parking lot while it's snowing can be quite dangerous with all the cars trying to get out.

2 College Sophomore

Computers: computers in the computer lab are slow and old. there are only two printers for printing personal docs. wifi is unreliable and can be quite slow. also, the school block a lot of sites such as facebook and almost all sites except for the school's portal system and email are blocked during finals week.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: There's plenty of parking at LECOM Erie. The medical and pharmacy students have different schedules so parking isn't an issue. Also, during the winter, the school does a great job clearing the snow.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: LECOM campus in Florida only offers Pharmacy, Osteopathic medicine and Dental doctorate programs. I like that it is seclusive and specific. It helps you focus on your studies and be involved in our school activities....

Off-Campus Housing: Housing in Florida is not that bad, but the prices could be quite high , specially for one bedroom apartments, would be better off getting a two or three bedroom apartment

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The pharmacy curriculum really tries to integrate all the classes topics together per semester, so we can remember the materials better
