    Nikki, You really are an invaluable resource for those of us who don't know Rochester! Sorry to keep bombarding you with questions but I have one more I won't be able to come out to Rochester until the 1st or 2nd weekend of April to look for an apartment for May 1st. Do you think that will be a good time frame for me to find something? It seems like most postings up right now are either for April or June 1st...I'm hoping the May rentals will pop up when folks put in their notices in April.
    I'm sure come beginning the of April once tenants give notice to their land lords that they wont be renewing their lease, they will all come out of the woodwork and pop up on CL. I wouldn't worry, by the time you can get up to Rochester to check things out a lot more will be available online. There is such a wide variety of housing styles to choose from in Rochester, so I would pick out a bunch to go look at when you are there to get a feel for the different neighborhoods and housing styles. I personally prefer the apartment within a larger house (which are the most popular there). I'm so excited to move back to Rochester for good, so that should say something about the area. Seriously the summers there are the best. There is so much to do (when we ever get an ounce of time to ourselves lol). Let me know when you are heading there to visit, I can give you some great restaurant suggestions.

    Hey guys,

    The closest area is the white coat ghetto it is the closest to the URMC and school of nursing. Other areas that are decently close, about a 10-15 min drive and the safest would be park ave. (where I am going to be living) and 19th ward. This website has a little interactive map that shows you the neighborhoods in relation to U of R (bottom left). Fist click on Rochester, then it will show you the downtown neighborhoods. I would try to stay away from the Monroe area to live. The South wedge, and monroe is an up and coming living area ( and it is where most of the college bars are located) but late at night the neighborhood can get a little rough. Hope it helps a little if you have specific questions about what is located in those specific neighborhoods let me know, I've lived in rochester most of my life.

    The White Coat Ghetto is by far the best area to live while in nursing school. It is close safe and fun. Lots of other students, medical dental PhD, MBA and grads. Be careful with anything on the other side of the river. The U of R has tried to make it safe by putting up lots of security phones but for a reason. This is not a safe area. City of Rochester, Park Ave, South Wedge and other side of MT Hope are ok daytime but questionable for a anyone to walk home alone at night.

    Hey everyone,

    I reserved a room through the above website...the house is on Raleigh street. My question to those of you who know the area is if there are good places within walking distance (restaurants, grocery stores)...also, do people ride bikes? I am trying to determine if I need a car. I figure I will need one in the winter, but I would prefer to walk/ride places in summer and spring. Is this do-able?

    Thanks!

    Raleigh str is 2 min walk to the nursing school. You would need a car to get down town to go to restaurants, but you would not like to live down town. There are busses that will take you down town and to shopping malls. Many of the nursing students do not have a car when they live so close to the school

    Hey Xtina, I was wondering if you happen to know if these are filling up quickly. I would love to get my chance on one of them.

    Hey KatyB,

    I would say definitely email the guy and ask him. I know some are opening up at the end of summer. Also, I am not 100% sure if i'm coming, there is a small chance I will end up at another school, but they aren't letting us know until end of March....SO if I end up having to give up my spot, I will let you know asap!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm so happy I found this. I'm stressed about financial aid. I've emailed the financial aid counselor but haven't heard back yet. Have any of you talked to him and figured out what kind of funding is out there?

    I just spoke to the financial aid counselor yesterday. She told me we will be finding out next month what the school is going to offer us. I asked her about alternative loans, and she told me to wait until I receive my financial aid package before looking into them. I can't believe we don't get our financial information until April. Waiting that long to get everything situated gets me nervous.

    Nikki,

    Was she talking about those scholarship too, the ones they included in the acceptance packet, or just loans?

    THanks

    I just asked about the loans..I'm not sure about the scholarships. If they are awarded they may be included in your financial aid package, or you may be notified separately. Good luck!

    Thanks for the response Nikki! Yikes, that is a long time to wait. I'm really excited but feeling a little nervous and stressed. I feel like I should wait to look for a place until I know if I'll be getting financial aid...
