What are your general comments?

"Rochester is outstanding, no doubt. It's a solid program that is growing and progressing. Upstate New York doesn't have the relaxed atmosphere of other regions, though the people are very nice. They are just reserved. There was some down time during the day where we could tour around, visit lectures, etc. One of the interview rooms was difficult to find (in the hospital), so leave yourself time. There is a walking tour, so bring comfortable shoes. I was tired from traveling to multiple cities and previous interviews right before, so I actually lost my train of thought on one question (but I recovered, thank goodness.)" Report Response
