cheap, what u pay is what u get, ask 10 year exp whether anyone care about her education. It is all up to you
Are you a current student at Erie? I heard in a previous post the school doesn't really help set up students on their rotation sites as well, do you know if that's true?

I'm currently a student at LECOM - Erie and they JUST changed it this year where you can ONLY do your rotations within a certain radius (i think it was around 200 miles) of Erie, PA. Students last year were able to pick and choose wherever they wanted to go. Although, they had to find them on their own (if they wanted to go else where like out of state) it was not as hard as people say it is unless you live in the middle of nowhere. LECOM does have places for students and everyone in my class has already gotten placed somewhere in Erie or surrounding Erie (farthest out that I know of is in Cleveland. I'm not sure if they've been telling you guys during your interviews that you can't do your rotations anywhere, but that was a BIG reason I chose LECOM. If you're looking at other pharmacy schools, I would recommend you consider going there instead unless you don't mind staying in Erie and have to possibly drive an hour to your rotation sites. It's unfortunate for a lot of people in my class bc more than half of us are from out of state and were looking forward to doing our rotations in cities and pharmacies in our home towns that'll actually consider us when we're done with school. Good luck to you all. 1-3 exams/week, 1-2 quizzes/week and 1-2 homework assignments/week. Be prepared for many sleepless nights.

I submitted my secondary 9/25/17 and received an interview invite today, 9/26/17 for Tuesday, Oct 10.
Undergrad GPA: 3.48
Graduate GPA: 3.5
PCAT: none
B.S in Biology
Currently in a MPH program
Lots of extracurriculars. A couple hours of pharmacy exposure in Honduras on a volunteer trip.
No other pharmacy exposure.
Thank you for putting up your stats. I am going to be totally honest and say that I am busting my behind to get my GPA up because I know that I have to have a 2.75 and right now I have a 2.57 because I graduated in 2013 with my Bachelors in Biology. 2015 I completed a online program and my Masters is a 3.60. I am currently working towards a Biology certificate online and right now that GPA is a 3.30. My application is verified and my GPA seemed to drop so I don 't really know that to do. I have been a pharmacy tech for 10 years now so my experience is phenomenal. What other things would you recommend I do because if I do not get into the school for this cycle, I will be applying for next cycle during early admission because my Graduate Certificate will be over in October. I will everybody luck.

Where do you live at? I think the wait time of receiving the letter based on the distance. There's a guy in Atlanta interviewed on 09/26 n received the letter today

Did you receive an email request to do a criminal and drug background test? If so, consider yourself accepted. But I believe it took about 2.5 weeks to receive that email, and another week to receive confirmation of official acceptance.

Thank you so much, I never get the email and it has been 5 working days from the day I interviewed, but I'm still patiently waiting for the email to get to me, thanks again

Hey, I never received the background check and drug screening email before receiving my letter of acceptance. Some people did and some did not upon acceptance. So don’t worry about it. I went on my interview on the 26th of September and received my letter via postal service in exactly a week after my interview. I did apply early decision though so my processing time was faster as compared to those who applied regular decision, which from what people told me is roughly 2 weeks. My status on the portal was the same after the interview and it stayed that way until I turned in my matricualtion fee and agreement.

Hi, I just applied 9/5, I think its good to have a topic like this.
Anyone got the interview invites?
I applied on 02/28/2018 and thought I was late but they invited me for an interview which took place on 05/15/2018 at the Erie campus for the 3 year program. Today 05/31/2018 my status changed to ‘A decision has been made.' I’m a little nervous about what the decision might be. I still have an interview next week in Florida for the LECOM distance and Bradenton pathways.
