What are your general comments?

"Rochester was fabulous. My friends who went through this process last year raved about the school - and now I can see why! It's a very friendly and supportive place. One amazing aspect is that you start rotations in the middle of your first year. Both the interviews were closed file, but you bring your interviewer a sheet with your top four activites - both used an activity to jump-start the conversation. When you go there to interview, just relax - the entire day is very relaxed with lots of opportunities for you to speak with the current students!" Report Response
