    Hey! I'm just curious; which one do you prefer? A nametag for your white coat, or your name engraved on the coat itself?

    I would go with the cheapest option which is neither. At the end of P4 year, I celebrated my graduation by burning my white coat.

    LOL! Same choice here. My mates are calling me weird for wanting a nametag, and caring about the placing of my name so much. :( I think nametags look more official.

    “Most people” at my school didn’t get ‘named’ anything because they didn’t care about their white coat ceremony. Lol, I do! It is a symbolic, memorable event!

    Besides, “most people” won’t be living with my decision for the next four years. I will, so I’d much rather make a choice that I won’t regret. Haha!

    Thank you for the advice, though! :)

    Fine, I'd go with the name tag then, which you can wear on your rotations, without standing out while you are in class
