What impressed you positively?

"The students and doctors all seemed very happy to be there and proud to be members of the Mayo Clinic. My interviewers were both friendly and were very familiar with my file. The small class size (42) really lets you get to know your classmates and professors. The curriculum has the most flexibility due to selectives to let students tailor their education to their interests.The Mayo Clinic is really one of the best healthcare facilities in the world, and students get to work with some of the finest physicians.
