"My experience at LECOM by far has been the worst experience of my entire life. The faculty and staff are condescending and rude to students and once you pay your tuition LECOM is sink or swim. The school couldn't care less about your well being or success and if you disagree with something or voice an opinion you are immediately put on the chopping block. You are responsible for teaching yourself the material and if you can't do that then you're really going to have a hard time. Don't be surprised when professors say straight to your class that "there are people who don't deserve to be here" or that its their mission to rid the world of these students. I firmly believe I did not get the education I paid for while at LECOM and if I could turn back time and apply to another College of Pharmacy I would. The "horrible" reviews you read online are just the tip of the iceberg. No amount of words can describe the real nature of LECOM which is nothing short of awful."

"I attend LECOM's Bradenton campus, located in Bradenton, FL. I am very pleased with my decision of attending LECOM's pharmacy program. In my opinion, the academic staff that is employed there are beyond great. The professors are knowledgeable in their field of study, they provide support , encouragement, and motivation to succeed in the pharmacy field. The campus itself is not large, consisting of one main building shared by medical and pharmacy students. Two lecture halls, accommodating over 150 students comfortably. The security staff is adequate, security systems are modern, with multiple surveillance cameras throughout the school's campus and parking lots. The student affairs office staff are easy to work alongside with and are always available to answer any questions. I like the small school setting, particularly because I have a physical limitation. The amount of course workload is sufficient. At LECOM, due to the curriculum and the course workload, one learns the concept of "time management", as well as good study habits, both essential in order to succeed in this field. Many student associations are available to the student, throughout all four years (or three years if attending Erie Pennsylvania's accelerated program). Student rotations are well organized. Initially, I was reluctant with the idea of a professional dress code being enforced, but after the 1st week, it was second nature, and I wouldn't even think about having to wear a tie, or shoes. Dressing professional helps greatly when attending rotations. Preceptors are pleased with the appearance of the students, and people in general will take you more seriously,as well as treat you with the upmost respect. Overall, I can't really think of negative things to say about the school, I enjoy attending it and am looking forward to being a graduate in 2018, and representing the school with pride."

"I am completely loving the challenge of pharmacy school, as it makes me feel proud to be part of a rigorous yet esteemed program. But the cost often gets overwhelming. Housing is expensive in Florida, and being a commuter with a toll road only compounds an economic situation. And there are next to no options as far as financial aid, including no grants. In the end it will undoubtedly be worth it, I just have to endure the road to get there."

"I feel my school is very esteemed in the education process, and most of the faculty I've met so far seem to care about students' actual success. My cons would be that as far as financially, "you're pretty much on your own". There are really no alternatives as far as financial aid, options are very limited. I drastically find myself overwhelmed."

"I think the professors all do a very good job at being available to explain concepts more if needed. There are also student tutors to help. The workload can be very strenuous but pharmacy school is supposed to be challenging. The cost of living near school seems to be more expensive since it is in a growing area. Most students that have roommates can afford to live near school but others that live alone cannot afford it and have to live 30 minutes away or further. For being a professional school and spending so much money on tuition it would be nice to have free printing in the library for the students."

"My graduate program offers a lot of interaction with the community and being involved in what is going on in other programs as well. I enjoy knowing that the Med students and Dental students are doing and working along side them to offer the most efficient patient care. One downfall is the affordability of the area. Living in Florida is not cheap but it is so much fun!"

"Pros: not a research-based facility so the faculty focus more on students"
