    I am not sure if this program improves your chances of getting into LECOM but I would think that it must have some impact. One of my friends is completing the program this year and i'll make sure to get her input. Hope this helps!

    No, there was no interview for this. All you have to do is fill out the application, which is available online in PDF form. I submitted my application about 1.5 mo ago and I received a phone call today. I spoke with Laura Sloan who was extremely nice and helpful. She said that the program starts sometime in September.

    Hello Foozy40,
    Did you have to submit MCAT scores and do you know what kind of GPA you have to have to get accepted.

    Yes, you do have to have a copy of your MCAT to them. Its basically the same reqs as medical schools. At the beginning of this thread, there is a link to the post-bacc website and it addresses alot of the important issues you probably want to know. Take care:)
