Although located in what many would consider the armpit of America, the University of Rochester is an institution of higher learning held in surprisingly high regard both internationally and domestically. Internationally, according to the Times of London, the University of Rochester ranks 73 substantially ahead of many well reputed schools including Dartmouth and admittedly below many of the world's most renowned schools. Domestically, according to US News, the University of Rochester fluctuates in the low 30's and high 20's. Its large endowment and excellent research opportunities make the University of Rochester an excellent stepping stone for future admissions into graduate school. Overall, Rochester is a great place to obtain an education but not such a great place to have a social life.
Its fucking freezing and I'm miserable, thank god I busted my ass in high school to get a 1450 on the SAT and a 4.0 GPA so that I could come to the University of Rochester!
