"One thing has become clear to me. I think I would have been
lost if I had gone to a big school," he says. "I would have been one
of a thousand instead of one out of a couple of hundred and I was
one of just a few thinking about medicine."
And there are always a few.
Mount Allison continues to produce graduates eager to move
on to a career in medicine. Four Mount Allison graduates --
Charlotte Edwards ('09), Laura Stymiest ('11), Kavish Chandra
('09, '11), and Scott Lee ('09) -- are currently attending
Dalhousie Medical School new Brunswick.
Other students have gone on to medical school in other parts of
the country, like nicole Robichaud ('11) and Sean Rasmussen
('11), who are attending McMaster University.
"I knew it would be a stepping stone," Pelletier says of Mount
Allison. "I knew it wouldn't be my last university, but it would be
my fi rst and in terms of laying a foundation, it would be the best
place for me to be."
