What impressed you positively?

What are your general comments?

"Awe pretty much sums it up, the place is huge. I went to a grand rounds lecture for lunch with some med students (they said they go every day if they want to, and some do), it was amazing! Going in I was 50/50 with a school on the E. coast but after this I'm pretty set on going to Mayo...the acceptance rate isn't encouraging though :(" Report Response
