    Hi Yoga Rose! Could you tell us how you are liking the program so far? Are the clinicals arranged for you or do you have to set them up? How many students are in the average class? How many were admitted to your cohort? How can we access the off-campus housing board? Questions questions questions!

    Thanks!!

    Hi YogaRose! So nice of you to join the thread! I think you can pm after you have 15 posts, so a couple quick posts and youre there. I look forward to hearing about the program and any advice you have, but will try to keep in mind how busy you must be!

    Hi! I'm loving the program so far, despite being pretty busy (I am looking forward to Spring break!). The clinicals are set up for us. We have not started clinicals yet...we begin after Spring break. I think for your class the first 6 or seven weeks is devoted to classes and lab. In the lab, you will learn the basics that you will need for clinical. When we go to clinical, there will be 8 students to each faculty person. We will each be assigned a patient, but we have our classmates, professors, and the floor nurses around us.

    My cohort is only 48 students. I believe the May cohort is usually between 100 and 120 students. My class has all the lecture classes as a group, and the lab is split into two groups...I'm not sure how they will do it with you.

    Here's the link for the off-campus board http://manit.resnet.rochester.edu/och/ If you click "search" you should be able to find some apartments. It may not have been updated recently, so check the posting date.

    Another thing I would recommend is taking care of your alternative loans (or other financial aid) as soon as you are able. I set up my loan around Thanksgiving and was very grateful to have one less stressor when I started in January.

    Thank you so much YogaRose! You are such a great help! People have suggested that UR/Strong, 19th Ward, and Highlands are good places to live because of its proximity to the university and hospital, but comfortability is also very important to me. Do you have any suggestions? I have no idea how to PM you, at least I think I don't. I would definitely like to get more information about your friend's aprtments.

    I found my apartment in the UR/Strong area...that's the closest. I'm a 15 minute walk to the school. It depends on if you would prefer to walk to school (I prefer this...I've only been driving when I am going to be at school late). Some people live in Brighton, just a 5 minute drive away, others in the Park Ave. area, etc. Parking at the school is $22/month. I'll try to figure out contacting you with the information about the apartment.

    Hey everyone! I was wondering if there is anyone else that is on the waiting list and how their waiting list works. If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it!

    Yeah they definitely do! I just got my letter. I am not sure how they pick from their waitlist but at least there is some hope for us!

    Thanks a lot YogaRose! What you described is exactly how I would want it- close to campus and limited driving. Thanks for your help

    Haven't been to this thread in a while, looks like more people have chimed in lately! Great to see so many people on here will be in the May class.

    I'm also in Rochester and have lived here since 04 (also graduated from UR in 03), so I can answer some questions about the area if people have them. Plus, I work at Highland Hospital, which is part of Strong Health (UR Med Ctr).

    Maybe when people start arriving in the area this Spring we can all get together !
