    I was interviewed on Tuesday for the January 2013 cohort. My interviewer told me that they had so many interviews to do (plus they are very thorough about going over your file) that they would likely not mail decisions out until the first week of October. She said some might be earlier, but not to expect a decision until then.

    Hi Emilykb,

    My interview will be August 2nd for January 2013 cohort. I am so nervous. What kind of questions did the interviewer ask? And did you do your interview via phone or in person. Good luck to you girl. Please stay in-touch.

    My interview was also on Tuesday and I'm sure I was after you (had 4:00 slot, which was the last one). Honestly it was NOTHING like I expected. I don't even think it was even a interview as it was more of a casual conversation. Kind of disappointed b/c I did a huge preparation on it believing that it would have been intense, especially since I thought they would be asking those behavioral questions, but on the other hand I was relieved as it was really relaxing. All I was asked was my background, why I did my major, opinions on certain issues and then I asked some questions about the school and it lead to some very interesting conversations where she talked about her family life and such. It was really relaxed and did really ease tensions I had while on the phone. So I guess for those who have theirs coming up soon, just be relaxed, be honest with yourself and go with the flow.

    Hi Demeanor89,

    Did you do your interview via phone or in person?. I live in Queens and I am looking forward to going up to Rochester. I cannot wait to see the campus. My interview will be Via phone. I hope my interview will carry as much weight as the other applicants that will be interviewed in person. What do you think? Thanks for the advice. I will try to relax.

    Hi Hippocraticrush,

    I think UR will be sending out their decision starting August ending or September. Take a look at the online application. I will keep my fingers cross for everyone as well as I will send up a prayer. Peace!!

    Hi guys! I interviewed July 6th. Like many of you have been saying, my interview was very relaxed, but my interviewer still asked typical interview questions like 'What are your strengths and weaknesses academically?' and she also stressed the fact that it is very difficult to work in the program (even part time) because I had told her my plan to continue working (less hours of course). I was told I won't hear anything until September=/. I did get a tour of the building which I am assuming is standard, but a plus is I did get called for my interview before they had even received my transcript with my pre-requisite grades, just my undergraduate transcripts with GPA. Does anyone know how many students they are accepting this cohort? I know in the past it has been about 57-60.
