"The admissions office staff and the students were extra friendly. When we were walking around the school, students came up to us and asked how things go... very friendly and supportive environment. Also Mayo clinic is HUGE. It's like a city of its own. There is no doubt med students get the best education possible. They really take care of you. "
"Rochester does not have anything else. Everything revolves around Mayo. Mayo is the whole town. Everyone who lives there is employed by the hospital. The weather sucks and there's nothing else to do and no where else (close) to go to when you're bored. Apart from that, Mayo is a great school!"
"LOOOOOOOOOONG day... Besure to get a lot of sleep the night before because the day really tires you out. Don't bring too much winter clothes. Even though it's bitterly cold there, they have underground tunnels that you can walk through around the whole downtown area (which includese like one mall, 2 hospitals and some hotels). "
"It was a long day. The admission staff and the students really want to put as much into you as possible about Mayo. My student interviewer was GREAT although she asked me a lot of 'harder' questions. (I interviewed at other places before and Mayo is the most stressful so far.) The faculty interviewer was not that friendly. My interview was cut short to only 25 min. He didn't seem interested. "
