I'm not ISP but I do go to LECOM and here's what I know from talking to several ISPers. Anatomy is from August until Thanksgiving. You will be in class 5 days a week, regadless of pathway until then. ISPers were told they would be in class 1-2 days per week (definitely Wednesdays--that's OMM) after anatomy. However, lately they said they've been in closer to 4 days a week, but expect that number to go down a bit next month (Im not sure why, or if it will stay down). Wish I could give you a more definite answer. If you're seriously considering not attending LECOM because of the bashers on SDN, I would carefully think about their motivations. I remember from your previous posts that you're from Pittsburgh area and that your mom was going to come help you out with your kids. Unless you're completely blown away by the other school you interview at, I would recommend the school that meets your locational and family needs. When all is said and done, you still get the degree. Yes, there are flaws with the adminisration at LECOM, but you're still going to learn what you need to learn and meet great people. It's only 2 years (if you're going home to rotate) so I wouldn't want to disrupt my family too much by dragging them halfway around the country (especially if you're mom isn't keen on it since it seems like she's doing you a huge favor by moving with you Like I said, if one school blows you away, certainly pick that one. But from my experience, there wasnt one that seemed to stand out too much so I went with family/ location reasons and have been pretty happy at LECOM.
