What are your general comments?

"I loved the school. The fact that you start clerkship during your first year is a major plus. Let me talk about what's not posted up. I flew into Rochester the day before the interview. If you anyone is thinking about staying in a hotel, I recommend Econo Lodge. It's no Four Seasons, but it's cheap ($43 bucks) and it has a shuttle van that takes you to/from the airport and the university. There's a lot of places to eat around Econo lodge- Hooters, taco bell, boston market, just to name a few. Most people were done by 3/3:30 pm, with the exception of MD/PhD applicants who had multiple interviews." Report Response
