Testimonials

Hear what participants in the program are saying about their Altitude Experience!

My relationship with Laura is great because she gives so much support and encouragement in every goal I try to accomplish. I can talk to her when I’m having a busy week in University knowing that she’ll understand my situation and give me good words of advice.

Resham’s guidance has really helped me think about my path and the choices I will make toward reaching my goal.

- Golnaz

She is very open and supportive. Very willing to answer all of my questions. Even though her schedule is packed, she is willing to make time for me.

- Tyler

My mentor and I get along very well, I don’t think there could be a better match. We constantly check in on each other and she reaches out to see if I need help in my assignments or classes.

BaseCamp Testimonials

My favorite part of the conference was actually the part that I thought would be my least favorite part which was the coffee house. It was awesome to sit and watch everyone come out of their shell and preform random skits they prepared. Minute to Win It and the motivational speaker/comedian Andy also can’t go without mention. Soo much fun!

My favourite part of the conference was meeting new people, and learning new things and meeting the volunteers. They really helped me to aim high but to stay grounded as well. I also really enjoyed having Andy as a guest speaker because he gave me a lot of motivation to do better.

My favourite part of the conference was when each of the individual groups were able to have our own private sessions and learn about the many things people may not know about university. I also enjoyed the speakers as they were also very helpful.

I LOVED BASECAMP! Got the chance to meet so many great people and network. I even got to meet more people that would be going to the same school as me, when I thought I wouldn’t know anyone

The BaseCamp was very beneficial and I will surely recommend it to anyone I know that is considering medical school!

This was truly an amazing experience that made me feel much more prepared for university. The scheduling was perfect, alternating fun and serious business in a way that made me enjoy myself while also learning the skills that I needed. We were fed great food at great intervals. The mentors were very insightful, very friendly, and were always ready to get us to play some fun games. I can’t wait to work on the other side of the camp next year as a mentor! Thanks again!
