LECOM's Independent study program

Does anyone know of anyone who has been through this program? I believe it is relatively new. It is now competing with Upstate as my #1 choice.
You must attend for the first 12 weeks for anatomy, and 1-2 days a week thereafter. (Obviously, you must do a whole lotta studying at home!) You can then choose from clinical sites at many locations for your rotations.
I am wondering if you get as good an education by doing it this way. It is certainly ideal for me as the closest med school is 2 hours away. This would allow me to attend school while living with my family.

If I remember correctly, LECOM says you have to live within 30 minutes of school…I think the ISP program is 3 years old. You probably would find more info at www.lecom.edu
