My experience so far has been great. I’ve had some horrid teachers that made school miserable, but also had some of the most amazing, supportive, encouraging and inspirational ones I've ever met. However, the nurses have been treating me poorly even though they have proof of my chronic illnesses. I've been refused help, criticized, accused and more by them, which has ended a few times with me in the hospital due to their poor aid. The courses and new building are great though and I look forward to my electives. I feel prepared for the future besides the subjects that I had less than adequate teachers for.
