Does anyone know how the new Mayo medical school in AZ will stand up against other MD programs across the country? I assume it will take a while for it to gain any sort of prestige, but just wondering if it would be worth applying to for admission in 2019. Thanks for any help!

I just got a test grade back in my Genetics class that means I'll likely end up with a B, B+ or A- in the class overall, and I was just wondering how everything shaped up so far. This has likely been covered in a different thread, if so, just LMK and I will check it out. Just a bit...

I will be out of the country from July 3-July 19th without electricity or access to my email. My application was verified June 8th. Will this mess up my timeline of applying early if I am unable to submit or write secondaries during this time? When do secondaries typically arrive?
