I applied and toured the campus. Nice looking school and they gave me an enticing academic scholarship. The Engineering program there felt extremely weak however so I had to opt out. You're lucky to be in the heart of Wegman's country.

UofR could be an actuarial powerhouse if it wanted to. We definitely have the brains. It's just that our academic departments focus more on research disiplines (no actuarial science or accounting degrees). Basically, our school is really good for preparing people for grad school who want PhDs in their fields. I almost missed out completely on this great career due to not being aware of the profession!

maybe. I agree it's really good as grad school prep. It would be nice if there was an undergrad business degree, but it prides itself on being a research institution.

I found the Certificate in Actuarial Studies one day when I was bored and read the undergrad bulletin.

Let's not forget that Rochester also has a good juggling club.
