Why did you choose the University of Minnesota?
UMN has a strong reputation for innovation and academic achievement. While this is certainly earned, I was most impressed by how gracious and inclusive the staff were to me as a visiting medical student. The Twin Cities have world-class medical training while also being a fantastic place to live and raise a family
