I just wondered if anyone had been through this program and had any inside info about it? They claim that 90% of its graduates gain admissions to DO schools and it seems like a pretty good program. Any info appreciated.

Also, has anyone else gotten information regarding housing and financial aid? I have not gotten anything from them after the acceptance letter.
I am also attending the Lecom postbacc in September and I have just received the list of names looking for room mates. I am trying to find anyone that is also looking to share expenses, a non smoker. My name is Cary and I am at the top of the list if you received one.medic170 said:I have not got anything but the letter either. I found financial aid stuff on the web site, si i am filling it out and sending it in. I emailed them, but no response either. Anyhow, I'll be there this fall too!
I find this story VERY hard to believe. Especially since they told me personally that 90% of the post bac students got in last year. I find it even harder to believe that any medical school is racist.trulyblessed1 said:It is sad to say but you are pretty much granted a seat in LECOM after doing the post-bac as long as you are not a minority. all of the minorities were waitlisted except for 2 there were a total of 18! and gpa's ranged from 3.5-4.0. There were some non-minority students that got in with gpa's under 2.7!!!! Student affairs told everyone as long as they did well there was a seat for them, UNTIL everyone did WELL! Then they started to dig back into students files and talk about mcats and past grades which they said they would not do. Professors who got involved were told to mind their business. conditions got so bad students had to get lawyers. Most students were afraid of speaking up for fear of never getting a seat. They would not even take these student when lecom bradenton only had 50 people! very weird school. be concern about a school owned by a brother and sister in which the brother is the CEO and the sister is the dean.
wow good luck with the financial aid part.blaster167 said:Has anyone gotten their financial aid information from LECOM for the Post Bacc? The reason I am asking is because we are only a month away from starting classes and I still don't have any loans.
