"Describe some of your leadership experiences and tell me what they taught you."
"This site and Mayo web site."
"Everyone! Staff, faculty and students were all very, very positive and helpful. Mayo Foundation has tons of $$$, so facilities are great. They have audio/video hookup with their clinics in Jacksonville and Scottsdale so in some lectures, you get interaction with students there (on rotation). Also, met Dean Windebank. He said he normally does a formal-type powerpoint presentation, but decided to just sit down with us (6 of us) and talk. It was a very interactive conversation about all sorts health care issues. I felt that, if I still had a question, I could go to his office and ask him."
"It was -9 degrees!"
"Before going there I was so nervous because--it's MAYO! Everyone there is so nice. They really want to know who YOU are, on a personal level. No one is out to get you."
"I would, without a doubt, have no hesitation going there. I'm a California girl, but to be able to learn in that type of environment, I'd put up with the Minnesota winters."
