I just got a voicemail saying I'm off the Mayo waitlist so I'm guessing this decision needs to be made quick. Help! I was all set to go to Vandy and now I could really use some advice. You guys are always so helpful! I haven't thought much about the pros/cons for Mayo since I didn't think I'd get in, so if you can add anything, please let me know! (Also I got some financial help from Vanderbilt so Mayo will actually be more expensive) Mayo Pros: Amazing hospital and people Cons: So cold and not much to do there, more expensive Vanderbilt Pros: Highest student satisfaction?, good match list, cheaper Cons: Not as good clinical opportunities? Does anyone know if you get lots of patient contact at Mayo? I heard since there are mostly wealthy patients there, med students don't get to do as much. Also, I want to do research and I really like Vandy's Emphasis program. Mayo is also pretty supportive of research, right? Does anyone know which has a better match list? I know it doesn't guarantee that I'll do as well as those students, but I'm kinda curious. Sorry it's long and everyone is probably tired of these threads, but I don't want to make a rash decision. Any advice/info about the schools would be appreciated!
