    Anybody interview at Rochester? I was actually quite impressed with the program. New chair is making some positive changes and the facilities are hands down best I have seen. Residents in recent past have gone onto impressive fellowships and there are great research opportunities. Anyone want to comment on their impressions/experiences? Thinking about ranking them highly...whole intuitive feel thing going on here...wanted to hear what others thought...

      no. whenever the lake effect comes into town, i'm gonna have my two cousins drive up in their convertible with "Vote 4 Pedro" on the door...the cousin in the drivers seat is gonna shake his head at the lake effect andthe lake effect will pass by and terrorize the adjacent town thereby leaving Rochester alone.

        I'll give you an actual response, 'kay?

        I had the exact same experience when I was there. I even did a search here and on google trying to learn more about the place, since nobody ever seems to talk about it. It's hard to not assume that a place is crappy because they have a ton of foreign grads, and nobody ever talks about "ooh, I want to go to the U of Rochester program!". But in this case, I decided to go with my gut and put them in my top tier. Yep, I am ranking them above a place like U of Minnesota. Part of it is that one of my important criteria is that the program take place predominantly at one facility rather than a bunch of them. At U of Minnesota you have to go to several hospitals, but in Rochester there is just one main one. And the facilities there are great, IMO. The residents are happy, and I was impressed about the research opps.

        So, no it's not just you.
