What impressed you positively?

"The totally casual attitude of the cut-throat fierce competitive atmosphere here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Perhaps a little too casual...not exactly disinterest on the part of the students, but I did not really feel that they were trying to impart an excitement about doing med at Dal...or maybe the students are already blase about medicine? I have a name that's not your typical Maritime name, and I was disappointed that they not only misspelled it, but substituted another more common name (of the opposite gender!)for my given name! I knew right away that they had messed up my name (because my surname was correct...and I doubt there was another interviewee with my surname), but when I corrected them, they seemed to not believe me for a few minutes...and kept looking for this non-existent interviewee at my appointment time. *sigh*" Report Response
