I have been accepted but have not recieved any information.

What day does orientation start?

What day do classes start?

Do we get a Xmas Break this year?

Are there any condos near the school that are for sale?

What is the nicest (safest, cleanest, most convenient, etc...) part of town to live in?

Are any of you other FLECOM students married?

That is all for now, thanks for your help
-Joe

These things are not known because they are contingent on completion of the building. See other thread(s) for the progress on this.

Yes.

Many condoes near the school. Prices? Starting in the $300,000s. Go into Bradenton/Sarasota for lower prices.

Lakewood Ranch itself. I'd say, based on cleanliness and safety, stay out of the area of Bradenton around 14th St. W.

That stuff will trickle in for the next few months. You won't actually know how much financial aid you will receive until after classes start. It's a little scary, but somehow it all works out in the end. (BTW, calling doesn't do any good. They'll just tell you that they are working on the 3rd and 4th year's financial aid and they will get to you in plenty of time.) Good luck!

What about LECOMB.

Gets rids of the fleas, still easy to see you're part of LECOM, and it has the Bradenton branch embedded in the name.

I'd like if it had it's own name like AZCOM. AZCOM is affiliated with CCOM, but it's not called CCOM-Glendale.

Wow, so many choices of good names now. I dont know. I like GCCOM, or SCOM, but BCOM doens't suit me very well. How about... (drumroll)...

FLOCOM
(Florida College of Osteopathic Medicine)

Its kinda catchy and has a "cool" and "laid back" feel to it. Let me know what yall think. But if you hate it, its GCCOM for me. I'm already going to refer to it as that. Good call Kid P.

For me, its simplicity. I'm all about the FCOM. Or perhaps the Lakewood Ranch College of Osteopathic Medicine (LRCOM). BCOM is good too though. Wonder what it will be on our diplomas?

BCOM, since it was my idea, seemed nice. Then I was like no one knows about Bradenton specifically. Its not necessarily like CCOM or NYCOM. GCCOM, however generalizes everything and is much more appropriate. Honestly I'd rather go to the Gulf Coast than Bradenton, lol know what I mean. Anyways this is a pretty neat thread lets keep the names rolling! ;)

FLOCOM is pretty cool, but makes me think of an old lady named Flo. The problem I have with BCOM is that, as Zia said, nobody knows what Bradenton is - although maybe we can change that. I think the best ideas so far are GCCOM and FCOM.
I don't think the powers that be at LECOM would like us taking it upon ourselves to change the name of the school though ;)

The simple truth IS the fact that the "powers that be" will limit what you can or cannot do...so, get used to Lecom-Bradenton.

Btw, I am an ambassador next year and being that I'm PBL, I will be one of the few, the proud, FL "big brothers." Let me know if you have any questions.

Are there going to be any MSIIs in Bradenton in the fall, or will it only be MSIs?


Thanks,
Yasmeen

They are holding a contest for renaming the school and coming up with a new logo design. Send your entries to Dr. Ferreti and make sure you include your name.

No MSII's.

Hey, how 'bout FeeCOM? Heheh. No, that wouldn't work. Wouldn't want to irritate the regime. But seriously, the "powers that be" only have so much power, and power is a perceived notion. We need a catchy nick-name even if it won't be called that officially. :D
