Very nice post. Thanks for the information. Ill give that website a look, its great.
So classes start at 9 everyday or was that hypothetical? I still didnt get the acceptance envelope in the mail yet, so i guess ill find out more specifics about the school and classes once i get it - so far i just got a phone call to confirm it.
About the dress code - do you think they require buttoned shirts all the time? bc from what i saw during the tour, it didnt seem as strict as some other school are.
I am currently in NYC which is like a 6 hour drive (or 1 hr by plane) so itll be a bit annoying to move. How about you? Where are you currently?
Sounds good. I checked out that site for apartments and stuff. Really helpfulI currently live in Toronto (1.5 hour N of rochester, 3 hour drive though), and as such I think i'm the only canadian student coming down.
you originally said you were waitlisted , congrats on the call. Did they say you came off the waitlist.I wish I knew if they are ranked. Congrats on LIU, too. Are you going to go there or Wegmans...tough decision
Are u attending Fisher sharpy or on the waitlist?
And you should attend Fisher stoop! It'd definitely be a different experience than your NYC life (as I figure LIU is in the busy city core right?).
To me what stood out to me/what I appreciated the most was the sincerity of the faculty. It gives me an idea that learning there will be an informative and positive/fun experience (the last which some universities lose sight of).
I am not in the SJF class of 2012, but I am in the VCU class of 2012... I grew up in Rochester (Fairport actually!) and I know a few kids in the class of 2011... anyway, best website I ever found for apartments in Rochester-
That's how I found all my places... I would look in the southwedge or monroe avenue area, its a younger crowd, nicely priced apartments... Near the school, theres some complexes, but not much in the way of apartments with character...
Also, please beware of renting from a man named Mark Siwiec... He was my landlord while back, and he was AWFUL. I ended up calling the cops on him a few times, and he made my life a living hell... Just forwarning.
I wish you all good luck and congrats! I hope you enjoy Rachacha!
I got my acceptance letter today! I have a lot to do before I will be ready for the fall. If I can't get a couple of classes in, find somewhere to live, and get student loans figured out I am screwed. I am very happy though. Just really stressed. I hope I see you guys in the fall!
