Rochester is for me, everything a school should

Sep 02 2011Mechanical Engineering
Rochester is for me, everything a school should be. Everyone here is friendly, as an incoming freshmen I feel welcomed by everyone, all the upperclassmen and professors are more than willing to bend over backwards to help you. On top of that we have great academic programs, professors are entertaining as well as knowledgeable, our extra curricular opportunities are amazing.

I think the University is an outstanding school

I think the University is an outstanding school for many of the students that attend. It is important to remember that if you do not have strong interests you should not attend the University of Rochester. The reason for this is is simple, there is no cirriculum at Rochester. There is little guidance for people that do not know what they want scholastically. Further, there are only some departments that are world class they are as follows: Economics, Political Science, Optics, Psychology, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The other departments at the school are average to below average.

You should only go to this university if

Jul 29 2011Biology
You should only go to this university if your family has a lot of money or if you have scholarship money that pays for most of the tuition. The campus is a bit on the smallish side, but that's okay. Some of the students here are quirky, but in a positive way. Each person is different in every different way, so this school achieves diversity in all aspects. In terms of education, there are some bad professors, but most of them only teach low level classes. However, there are more good professors than bad ones. If you need help, they are readily available and if you can't schedule an appointment, you can always email them.
