    Why are your reasons to choose Mayo (AZ) over Mayo (MN)?

    I was hoping to get some insight into the Mayo Clinic Arizona Medical School. I understand that Rochester is the mother-ship and the weather is nicer in Arizona, but what factors actually make Arizona campus competitive and/or more competitive over Rochester campus? Not including weather as a...

    Mayo (MN) vs Columbia

    I’ve been blessed to be given this option. I like both schools but I must decide within a week. Honestly, I’m leaning towards Columbia but I’m interested in some opinions, particularly from students from either school. Mayo is so unique that I believe no matter where else you get in it should be...

    Brown (Alpert) Med School vs Mayo

    Hey all, I need some help deciding which of these phenomenal schools to attend. I haven't received my financial aid package from Mayo yet, but let's say theoretically each school costs $0 (I wish). Which would you attend and why? Mayo is certainly a dream school of mine, and I fell in love...

    Is it possibe to get into Mayo with no research?

    Mayo (MN campus, since I'm one of those freaks of nature that actually loves cold winters) is my dream school since a doc at Mayo basically gave me 15 more years with my grandma when everyone else gave her 6 months and Mayo produced the ophthalmologist that saved my dad's eye. I'm sure it is a...

    As a TX resident with solid stats and decent EC's, is it worth it to apply to out of state schools? I've been told my stats are good enough for any school (I know I'd still be lucky to get into a top school because this whole process is crazy) and my EC's are average for a med school applicant...

    Mayo (Full Tuition) vs. Sinai (60% tuition)

    The difference will come to $54,000 over the 4 years. Mayo is a great place. I completely understand it's educational value, opportunities and how I could perceivably do better there academically. Of course the hospital is on another level and completely outshines Sinai. However, I absolutely...
