    well let's see...huhvaad, they gave me a real generous package...but yale, they were kind of stingy(I think it is because of the environment), at Cornell, I got such a nice package, and at UCSF they said I have a nice package hehe <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="[Pity]" title="" src="graemlins/pity.gif" />

    Stanford is renowned for their incredibly good financial aid. You can get a general idea of financial aid by looking at the average debt statistics on the US News site.

    duke gives out a lot of grants and their 3rd year is often paid for if you can get a research grant.

    MCW gives out a lot of loans. i talked with a financial aid officer there and he said that it'll be all loans (at least for me) and i won't get a package until June!

    Mayo gives everyone a minimum of a 50 percent grant (and full tuition is only $21,525 this year). For residents of Minnesota, Arizona, and Florida the remaining tuition is less than $6,000 per year...about $11,000 for non-residents. Several people each year (apart from the MD/PhD students that always do) receive a full tution merit scholarships as do several URM's.

Do they favor Floridian applicants at all?

    I think there's some Mayo affiliate in Florida. Could be wrong though. --Trek

    There are three 'Mayo Clinics'. The original in Rochester, Minnesota and two newer ones: Jacksonville opened in 1986 and Scottsdale in 1987.

    The school is in Rochester, Minnesota where you do your first two years. The third/fourth year clerkships can be in a mix of the three locations.

    Almost half the class is taken from Minnesota, Arizona, and Florida. However, the majority of these "in-state" students are from Minnesota (all but 4 (2 FL, 2 AZ) of 18 in-state students last year). I think the others don't like the weather in Rochester. The total class is only 42 and that includes 34 MD, 6 MD/PhD, and 2 MD/OMS.

    Because the entering class is so small, Mayo accepts the smallest percentage of applicants of any school -- less than 3 percent acceptance rate.
