Hi, everyone. I've been a guest on this forum for a while; just accepted into two programs and I'm lucky enough to have to make a decision between them. I know a lot of you have been in the profession for quite some time, and there have been a lot of discussions about some schools being better than others. The final cost could be significantly lower at Mayo. I have read in other posts that regionals and line placements could be an issue at Mayo; on the flip side, their students are exposed to a large variety of cases and seem to be given opportunities early on in the program to work (learn) independently in clinicals.

In light of the knowledge and experience you have, could you offer your opinions/suggestions on these two schools? PMs welcome as well.
