As I will probably be attending here next year I thought I would let you know what I know about the school.

Pros:
-Large patient base in clinics
-some classes with med students
-very good research facility, however their focus is not on research and is more clinically based. Research scholarships available.

Cons:
-Old facilities
-Cold weather


From what I have gathered this far it seems to be a relatively competitive school. They have scored just above average for the last 5 years or so on the boards I & II. In the past around 10% of the class ends up specializing. If you have any other questions PM me.

I'm a 2nd year at the U of Mn and my wife is a 1st year. As far as how competitive it is it depends on the people in your class. Our class is really competitive and can'y speak for my wifes. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

I don't know how large the alternate list is but I did turn down my acceptance to U of Minn, so that should bump you up one spot. Good Luck!

As of Friday (2/6/04) All but 7 acceptances have been confirmed. The last 7 have already been sent out but they have not received a response yet. There will probably be one more round in which a few acceptances will be issued. They expect the class to be full by the end of Feb. beginning of March.
