What impressed you positively?

"The students were all very friendly, open, and sincere--not the fake friendliness you sometimes find during campus visits. I attended a first year class and a second year class, and both were impressive in terms of the quality of the teaching, the level of interaction from the students, and the course material itself (the first-year clinical reasoning class especially.) The facilities were new, modern, and beautiful, and Strong Memorial is attached to the med school so clinical experience is literally right at your fingertips. Rochester students start their clinical experience in January of their first year--very nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"From what everyone in Rochester says, the weather is a little scary. Also, downtown Rochester is in bad shape. However, the med school and university are not near downtown and there are several beautiful neighborhoods and shopping areas that make up for the lack of a downtown." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How much it hurts to walk long distances in high heels! There are two tours and they are both pretty long and cover different stuff, so definitely try to wear comfortable shoes." Report Response
