What impressed you positively?

"the financial aid, incredible stats such as ridiculously high board scores, 100% residency matching...everyone seems so accomplished, and it seems to be a result of being at that school. The small class size. I would think that the students must be incredibly spoiled by the high faculty-to-student ratio. (12 to 1, I think?!)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really didn't expect to be as impressed as I was with the level of education that Mayo offers. I can't imagine anyone not succeeding once they attend school there. There are a wealth of opportunities there that I didn't really see at the other schools. I left wishing on a star that I would be one of the 40 students matriculating there." Report Response
