I think the University is an outstanding schoolQuite BrightEconomics
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.

Question
You should only go to this university ifQuite BrightBiology
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.

Question
Food is shitty and if you get toAverageUndecided
Food is shitty and if you get to lunch/dinner late you won't get anything because all the good things will be gone. I lived on lemonade and take out for a long time.

The city of Rochester is pure crap, so leaving campus is silly and not even an option.
It's HELLA hot in the summer; the dorms are mega stuffy.
I'm all for a challenge in school, but URoch overloads you with work. You won't have time for a life - or sleep - while you're here. I'm transferring and going back to civilization hopefully ASAP.
