The academics at the U of R are solid, especially in the sciences. The humanities are pretty good too. The campus is probably one of the better looking ones I've been to and I've been to quite a few campuses. Overall I had a good experience. Perhaps the best thing about the school is that if you do fairly well as an undergraduate you will more than likely get to go to a very prestigious graduate school because the U of R has a very good reputation for preparing students for law school, graduate enginnering work, and medical school. As for the social life, I don't know about what other people might say but it totally and unequivically sucks, the social scene is more of a joke really than anything else (I'm looking at this from a male perspective). On top of all this the weather is cold, very, very cold, Rochester gets more snow then Alaska, just look it up if you don't believe me. As for most of the people who went there I found them be very uptight, men and women alike, and a little too serious when it came to studying, I graduated with a 3.44 GPA so I don't consider myself a party animal but I also like to have a good time. For those of you who want to be in a serious environment and don't mind being surrounded by people who study considerably on the weekends this is the place for you, however if you want a decent social scene do not come here.
