I heard from my son’s guidance counselor that University of Rochester ED decisions may be coming out today. That is early! Has anyone else heard the same?

Yes, URochester ED notifications were out today

Thank you! Yes, my son got the notification this afternoon and he got in!!



Did anyone apply to the HEAL program, or know more about it? You do the BA in Epidemiology OR BS in Environmental Health and then the MS in Epidemiology. You get to skip the GRE and get a reduced tuition for the MS.

I am curious how many students would really know that they want to do the MS so early. I assume that this is simply an offer and some students drop out during their BS/BA if they change their minds and switch their major to something else.

Anyway, the due date to apply has already passed, and we missed it. I am wondering if it is still worthwhile to apply. On another thread, it stated that this was quite competitive.

Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thank you.

Does anyone know when ed2 decisions will come out?

IIRC they had between 8-12 students in previous years.

As with other programs, once you are accepted the student can change their major and have no impact.

IIRC January 18th was my daughter’s year, but EDII was released rolling, usually each Thursday or Friday from that date into Feb.
