Mayo Clinic?

  1. Hello,

    I am just beginning to look into CRNA programs around the nation, and from what I saw via websites, Mayo Clinic looks pretty interesting. Does anyone know anything about it? Is it any harder to get into than other CRNA programs? They make allusions on their site that they will help you with tuition and etc. if needed...but I didn't see any specific programs mentioned.

    Basically just wondering if anyone has the inside scoop on Mayo. If you don't want to post it here, feel free to mail me privately at lostdruid@earthlink.net.

    Thanks much!

    I applied and interviewed at mayo, I also have 2 friends that attended. I declined acceptance there for a number of reasons. First, class size was over 30 and I wanted a smaller class size. Second, they do few if any central lines (politics). Third, regional blocks were also few and far between (politics). Fourth, the weather is really nasty and the program length means 3 winters there. Fifth, we had no support system and my wife felt she'd be really miserable there. On the other hand, the director seemed very nice, the tuition was dirt cheap, less than $8,000 for the whole thing. They offered a substantial monthly stipend for each month you were willing to work after graduation. My friends took the stipend some months and not others as their finances warrented. The regional and central line thing were the major reasons I chose another school, but this was 4 years ago and things may have changed. Call them, they were quite nice to deal with.
