    So I recently have been accepted to LECOM-Erie into the LDP. Recently I have been wondering if I should switch to PBL. I have a Cell and Molecular Biolgoy Degree so I guess that would be considered a strong science backgroudn. I was wondering if any Erie students think I could switch at this point and what the advantages and disadvantages are of PBL and if you think it would be smart to switch. If you need any more info you can write back or PM me. Thanks for any help. :D

    It's strange; I was with both of you on two separate interviews. Cool, though. Congrats on getting into LECOM! Maybe we'll run into each other sometime out there while we're doing residency or practicing. I've been able to meet a lot of exceptional individuals out there because of this process and it's been really fun. Best of luck to both of you!

    Switching at this point won't help much as there are many already on pbl wait list.

    I have an interview coming up at Erie soon.... do you guys think it matters if I tell them I want to do PBL over LDP... will it hurt my chances of getting in? Although, I would like to do PBL, not getting into a medical school because of a type of teaching style is ridiculous! I would much rather do LDP than not be accepted to the school at all.

    The processes are separate. First, they decide if you're accepted, then they decide if you're a fit for PBL (or if they have spots open or whatever). That's what they told me, at least....in my packet, the acceptance letter was dated Oct. 31, but the PBL acceptance letter was dated Nov. 4. Then, on my reponse form, I have the choice of accepting the PBL acceptance, or declining it and automatically enrolling in the LDP.

    Do you know what your final choice is, Bradenton or Erie?

    Haha, I know, it's so hard being on the alternate list. You're waiting for Bradenton, right? Well, I'm 99% sure I'm headed for Erie....but until that check goes in the mail, I'm not promising anything!

    Don't worry! I'm sure it'll work out for you.
