LECOM's medical, dental and pharmacy schools together reserve up to 5 seats each year for our students.
Lake Erie College and the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine have partnered to enable talented students to gain acceptance to both LEC and LECOM. LECOM's medical, dental and pharmacy schools together reserve up to 5 seats each year specifically for Lake Erie students.
High school seniors who meet application requirements may apply for early acceptance to LECOM while they are applying to LEC. Current Lake Erie College students who meet application requirements may apply for early acceptance to LECOM before Feb. 1 of their sophomore year. (LEC students also may choose to pursue regular acceptance to LECOM.)
If accepted, students will have a reserved seat waiting for them at LECOM when they graduate from LEC, provided all program requirements are met. Students must maintain certain standards, including minimum GPA and MCAT score requirements.
Depending on their career path, students may choose from LECOM campuses in Erie, Pennsylvania, and Bradenton, Florida. The early acceptance program also provides students with the flexibility to apply to other medical or professional schools if they prefer.
Take the next step in securing a place at Lake Erie College and in a medical or professional school today.
