Finally, I saw someone else who had applied to (and been accepted to) Rochester Optics. Altoclef (or anyone else accepted) Are you planning on going to the open house?
And, to everyone in general, do you have any information on the program (aside from generic info I can find on the web)? I'm being indecisive about which school would be the best fit for me and the more information I can gather, the easier this decision will be.
[To give you my background info- I've applied to one general physics school (Lehigh U) because it's local, one school with liquid crystal focus (Kent U) because I love liquid crystals, and one school with optics focus (Rochester) because I'm also pretty excited about optics and Rochester also does some liquid crystal work. I'm mostly concerned about living in the area (and my husband needs to find a local job as well) and my job prospects upon graduating. I have no real preference in terms of job sector (academia, industry, etc).]
