What do you like least about this school?

"The new clinical director. She is an absolute nightmare on a power trip, might as well call her the "New Acting Dean" cause she does whatever she wants without consequence (without the student's best interest in mind btw) and she's never wrong.... ever. Have you ever been driving on the freeway behind a slow driver and they wave for you to pass them, but just as you go to do so they speed up and cut you off?? Well that's exactly how this past year has been with her, she tells us one thing and then goes back on her word. It's been so frustrating having to deal with this person as students because we feel like we don't have the support from the actual dean. Whenever we meet with the dean one-on-one to discuss whatever current problem she is making for us it goes something like this: Me: So the clinical director is going back on her word about... and is now making this a requirement. I've told her my situation but she doesn't seem to care at all. Dean: Have you tried talking to her? Me: -__- "What would you say..... ya do here??" The dean only seems to care about the numbers we put up, like boards and residency placement. Class morale is something he's probably never even thought of before." Report Response
