STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

EDINBORO UNIVERSITY: FOR THOSE WHO STRIVE

I chose Edinboro because of the small class sizes, that the professors are the ones teaching and do not use teaching assistants, The cost of attendance is very affordable, I am also on the track and field team and they are very competitive in the PSAC conference. I applied to two other colleges. I have always been an honor and AP level student, my high school GPA was a 4.279. I am currently in the honors college at Edinboro University. I also chose Edinboro due to them being an affiliate school with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine with their 4+ for early acceptance program. There are very few other students in this program as only five students per university are excepted, generally. It is just like any other program as you need 120 credits to graduate, but as long as you maintain at least a 3.2 GPA cumulative you have an automatic seat in medical school upon graduation.


Course Curriculum - 

I feel like the course current curriculums is very helpful for preparing students for medical school. I feel that they expose you to a wide range of different topics over your four years at Edinboro so that you will not go into medical school completely blind as some people say they do after their undergraduate education. They have the option to take two different anatomy courses, which I feel will be very beneficial to me in the future.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

EDINBORO UNIVERSITY

I got a tuition waiver, I have a family member that is employed there, it's local and close to my family, it's cheap, and the surrounding area is really nice. I didn't look at many other colleges because of the tuition waiver.


Course Curriculum - 

It's what's to be expected. In my opinion, the business department and specifically my concentrations (marketing and personal financial planning) do really well to teach students important knowledge and prepare them for their careers.
