Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine Reviews
LECOM does not care about their students whatsoever. They treat their students like they are children and give them no respect. When they tell you that the tuition is cheaper - don't believe them. Everything that most universities cover for you, that's wrapped into the tuition, LECOM makes you pay separately (SCAM). In addition, they have 15+ rotation sites and you will have ABSOLUTELY no say in where you go. They will tell you that you do, but you don't. You will end up in nowheresville PA or WVU or near the Canadian border. They do not care what your family situation is, kids, spouse who is the breadwinner, they truly do not care. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone.
Fully expect to become a competent, licensed physician.
There are security guards on campus at all times
All professors are very helpful and professional
Will provide a lifelong career in pharmacy with a significant pay
There is not campus housing available but i live in town
There is no greek life although there is academic fraternity
There are no athletic programs at LECOM, as it is a graduate, private school
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine is such a great school
The professors are here for the students. The program can be challenging and you have to put a lot of work into it, but it is worth it in the long-run because you will know what you are doing as a practicing pharmacists.
There is no on-campus living, so everybody has to rent an apartment.
In my visits, I noticed some diversity throughout the college.
I am not a part of Greek life so I cannot comment on this really.
I really am not sure about this one. I am just going up there in the fall.
I enjoy the strictness because it calls for a more studious area.
The professors are great and really care about the students.
There is a good variety of different restaurants, but none that are really that great.
Financial aid department available with e-mail reminders for FASFA and other financial deadlines, along with refund notifications.
There is a dress code in effect on weekdays until 5 pm and at all school related events. No food or beverages in class, no exceptions. Students remain in the classroom for 4 to 5 hours with a 5 to 10 minute break each hour. ID badges are required to enter the building; all students must keep their badges visible and scan them upon entering and exiting the building, visitors must check in with security and obtain a visitor pass.
Two large apartment complexes are very close to the school, one directly across the street and one next door. There are many others which may be more affordable, all within a 10 minute drive from the school.
