BSN Class of 2017
I was hopeful when I applied to the Mayo Clinic Summer III Externship in Rochester, MN in October of 2015. I knew there would be a lot of amazing applicants from around the country, and I knew there was about a 5% chance I would get in. Over 1,000 people applied to be in this position, but only 53 were accepted. I spent the next few months waiting anxiously for the application process to be completed. In March of 2016, I received the greatest email I could have ever asked for – my acceptance into Mayo Clinic. This was a real dream coming true and I could not have been more excited.
