Let's try this another way, spread those into a list like this

Rochester

Stoney Brooke

Etc

And tell us relevant information such as monetary data.

Generally speaking I would go to Rochester as it is a good school with plenty of unique programs and relatively decent grade inflation. However if you need to pay sticker price then I would recommend somewhere else.

And you want to minimize your loans, you're going to be going into plenty of debt through dental school and other things. But yes, I generally would say go to Rochester as that was my number 1 school, however that being said I went to my state school to graduate with 0 debt.

Wonder which degree you did! also what made you choose rochester from you other choices

I liked Rochester as it had a neuroscience program and was basically gorgeous. But at 50k a year v.s 8k a year at my state school ( I easily paid it off to get 0 debt), I couldn't not go to my state school. Also I did my degree in Psychology with a scholastic concentration on Behavioral-Cognitive Neuroscience.

Go where ever you can see yourself being happy for 4-5 years. Honestly, as long as you get good grades you'll be fine. There may be some benefit to going to a school that has a dental school associated with it, but it shouldn't be a big factor. Try to not pay 20k+/year for a undergrad degree that you'll never use other than to get into dental school.

So if you were to chose between those..which one would it be!

-not sure if being happy is to do with where you study-

Yh true dat

but some schools just never had anyone pursuing dentistry-which is a bit worrying so thats why I was asking if people share their experiences
