This is a valid question. It seems that there are several depressed students in my dental class. All of us come from different backgrounds but many have been leaders or go-getters of some type and now were all put together in such a hostile environment where the professors/dental school administration as constantly putting us down with insults and its almost like they are competing to see who can be the most unprofessional to us. Dental school is a very hostile environment, at least my school is. It will change a person, you will not be the same after you leave there.
