    Initially yes, but some things changed and I'll actually be on the Medical/Geri-Psych floor, which I'm super excited about!

    I'm sorry to hear that! I have been working at Mayo for almost a year now. It is an opportunity I'm glad I didn't miss. I work in General Medicine and have learned so much. Mayo gives so many opportunities for career growth and education.
    Rochester is also a great place to live. Housing prices have gone up but I rent a very affordable apartment and there are always people looking for roommates too. In addition, I have made some great friends (Rochester is a great place to meet people) and found a great church. It's a good place to start if you are young and able to do it!
    Hi! I'm happy to hear that you have had such a positive experience at Mayo and in Rochester! I just accepted a job for this upcoming August as a new graduate. I am coming from New England and am trying to figure everything out for my big move. Do you have any suggestions on housing or how I could find a roommate? Or any tips or advice about moving there in general would be so helpful!!!

    Hey!
    Sorry for the late reply!
    Rent is getting higher and higher so I would definitely suggest looking for a roommate or just buying a house (most rent is comparable to a mortgage here). I found my apartment on craigslist and was lucky because of the affordability and location near St. Mary's. I suggest (if possible) getting a place near where you are working (St. Mary's campus or Downtown) because of the commuting situation. It is park and ride in. There is no parking unless it's evening/night, you're willing to pay for parking, or you've worked here for a bajillion years. Walking/biking is much easier and saves you time on a bus.
    As far as the search goes, I would suggest looking on craigslist or facebook groups. It's hard finding a roommate until you get to know people here and start hearing about opportunities. What unit will you be on?

    Awesome, thanks for the advice! Since I posted I actually did find a roommate :-) I will be on a Internal Medicine / Med Surg floor!
