Rochester has sciences and clinical intertwined throughout all 4 years.... IMHO the best curriculum in the country

Does this opinion have anything to do with your acceptance? :laugh: :laugh:

Hey Zeke,

Where is U Rochester ranked? Just curious... their curriculum sounds great; unfortunately I never researched the school when I was applying...

Am I missing something or is this a little bit of a strange post? A. Why does it matter what Rochester's ranked? B. If you want to know, why not look yourself?

I don't think it's strange... I did look, couldn't find anything, but then again, I don't have the full edition of US news. Does it matter where Rochester is ranked? Not as far as whether it's good to go there or not. I was just curious because their curriculum seems really cool, but I haven't heard anything about it - so I was just wondering. No reason to attack... :)

U of Rochester is ranked 31 in research, according to US NEWS 2004. PM me if you want the rankings of the top 69 schools.

Quideam,

No I wasn't attacking at all. I was just sort of puzzled by the question. I got lots of love here, especially for a chick that plays hockey:D

Quideam....you play hockey?! :clap:
That's awesome!

AlreadyInDebt... My opinion has nothing to do with my acceptance. Rochester was my #1 choice from day 1. I'm still active at Pitt (in case I get the scholarship) and UVa (really liked the area, but like Rochester as a school better)... I'm 99% sure I'll end up in Rochester and will be very happy there. It's an amazing program.

UCSF has a completely integrated curriculum so I guess that's nontraditional. Lots of PBL and small group work. I'm very happy here but its not for everyone. OHSU, too.

hahaha I wish I was that good. I'm decent, but there's no way I could play at that level. I just play with friends up here and have played in summer leagues. Which one are you by the way? Just curious

Cleveland Clinic Lerner College has PBL and some seminars only. No lectures at all. Plus each student gets a clinical advisor and a research advisor for the entire period there.
