What impressed you negatively?

"Although I respect their efforts to promote medicine in Northern Ontario, Thunder Bay is likely the most abysmal city I have visited. Friends comment on how dangerous the city is and how they don't go to campus at night because the campus is surrounded by bush, thus making rapes not uncommon. A gentleman told me to watch my back in fear of getting stabbed by locals. The general environment seemed unwelcoming. One restaurant owner didn't even know Thunder Bay was host to a new medical school!" Report Response
