She really made an effort to tell me about the school/share her enthusiasm. I didn't know about the student run clinics (which are run by second year students), and she's going to be a director next year so she told me a lot about them. I'm not Catholic, and multiple people told me that Catholic teachings are not imposed on you. Rather, there is an emphasis on humanistic, compassionate clinical care which really appeals to me.

"Proximity of campus to local hospitals (University hospital and Children's hospital) as well as their affiliation with multiple hospitals, a huge amount of student-run community involvement la clinica and homeless clinics).

"The tour guide took us into the hospital. Most tours don't actually go into the hospital. Since students will be spending the last two years there, it seems that most should.

He seemed to genuinely care about his students. Also, he wasn't bored and blase about the process, even though he's probably interviewed thousands of people and made umpteen presentations. During my interview, he was enthusiastic and energetic. Also, I LOVED the Eddie doll. They have this simulated patient that they let interviewees play with. Awesome, awesome."

The other people who were interviewing on my day were conversational and the conference room that we waited in was not totally uncomfortable like it usually is in an interview.

"Students seemed happy and helpful. The tour guide (4th year student) was helpful and straight forward about what she liked about the school. There is a lot of diversity in the city/school which is good. I had previously interviewed at other mid-West schools and sometimes it's a bit strange for a minority to experience a town with so many white people. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just that I am used to diversity and it is readily apparent in St. Louis." More from this Member | Report Response

Our guide gave him some epi and we got to listen to his heartbeat increase w/ stethoscopes." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked how the curriculum is set up. There are opportunities for patient interaction outside of school during your first two years. There's a latino clinic and african american community based clinic that's essentially run or staffed partially by medical students. The clinical training is very strong here and the school isn't shy to emphasize that the clinical aspects are their strong point. In addition, you have electives that can be taken as early as your 2nd semester of your first year! The people are pretty nice. 2nd year board scores are among the highest for Saint Louis University in years. The undergrad campus is really pretty with all kinds of streams and lakes. I saw the gym there and its pretty large. Things are cheap, my buddy pays like $325 for rent. I also hear a new $64 million dollar research center will begin construction in the near future so that's a plus reputation wise. There's two lounges which was a surprise. Students seemed pretty involved there." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour wasn't very structured and my tour guides didn't really have much of a plan other than walk around and point out things on campus. The lunch with M2s was shortened, because our tour guides got us there late. I also wish there was more than one interviewer to have more opportunities to show who you are."

"There are limited clinical experiences for the first two years that are actually part of the curriculum, however students can gain clinical experience through volunteering at the free clinics those first two years." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lack of real interview quesitons; there was no formal introduction/overview presentation; overall, the admissions staff did not try to "sell" their school to me very much; very little financial aid offered" More from this Member | Report Response

"interviewer" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing I love the campus and the school and i would love to attend" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer was very monotonous and disinterested. He asked questions from a list and would not even make eye contact while I spoke. He kept typing on his computer that was placed between me and him and this added to the stress. I was under the impression that the interview would be conversational, however, it was nothing close to that. I kept speaking while the interviewer kept staring at his computer screen, and went on typing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day felt like it was thrown together last minute. No brochures or information about the school (outside of the dinky packet they gave us all) in the waiting room we sat in before/after our interviews. The tour was not that informative and the lunch information session I didn't find that helpful either. At all the other schools I had been at, a dean (or someone in a similar position) had made some sort of plug for why you should attend their school. Nothing of sort was done here which made me feel like they didn't really care if you ended up there or not. Facilities reminded me of a run-down catholic high school--not that the facilities make the school, but still." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was too conservative for me: many students are strictly religious and the school showed support for causes I disagree with (eg. pro-life and abstinence only education for teens). Other negatives included: students partied a lot, facilities were shabby, city of St. Louis is dangerous and doesn't offer much cultural life. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of St. Louis, and the difficulty/cost of getting back to either coast." More from this Member | Report Response

"The city of STL. Wasn't really impressed, seemed to be a lot of crime and the students confirmed this. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Apparently the city is not that safe. It didn't seem biker/jogger friendly either. The facilities are okay, but should probably be better, given the high tuition ($42,000). The tight seating and absence of desks in the lecture hall. " More from this Member | Report Response

So that was really annoying, and then he seemed really rushed, and kind of like okay let's get this over with, but once we started talking and asking questions, he seemed to chill out a little and so I think the interview went well, it was just getting to that point that was a lot of waiting" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was surprised our tour guide actually went to the school! She was a fourth year and knew absolutely nothing - like if the classrooms had wireless internet connection or what time the library closes (she says 10 but i doubt it..).

"St. Louis is very different from where I grew up in California. Yes, the school's facilities are a bit older, but what do yuo expect from the oldest Medical School west of the Mississippi? The school's location, although not so wonderful, was not too much of a concern because one can live far from campus (as most students do there) and then commute on not-to-crowded freeways (and the rent in St. Louis is incredibly low)."

"Its in a rough neighborhood." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour by the student was a little dull- she didn't seem interested in showing us around." More from this Member | Report Response

"The hallways of the medical school could have been prettier, but that's being quite picky." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of things: For one they say the metro drops you right off at the school, which it doesn't, it drops you 3-4 blocks away and you are right on a major busy road, and if you are heading straight from the airport (as I was) you have a suitcase, then it is not very conducive. Second the students at lunch sat on the admissions committee and this wasn't common knowledge. I was hugely discouraged by this. Third: the students weren't very enthusiatic, I asked a couple of students and they said the reason they went was because they got in." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area surrounding the school is pretty barren (few places to eat, for example) and if you go a few blocks down it's a pretty crummy area. A student living close to the school got mugged walking to class earlier this year. But, I wasn't really all that turned off by this--it's a big city, so of course you have to be careful/aware, and most hospitals are not in great areas because that's where they're needed! The area provides a great opportunity for clinical experience/exposure in my opinion. Especially because you never have to walk around off campus, and the interior of the campus is guarded and safe. You can navigate everywhere underground through the tunnels connecting the hospitals and the medical school. Also, my host said that she never felt unsafe. If you don't live close enough to walk to school (which you shouldn't) you have to have a car. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview day was very disorganized. We did not even receive a school packet or a financial aid talk. After our interviews we just sat around...and finally figured out that the day was over." More from this Member | Report Response

"The neighborhood around the school was a little rough, however there are plenty of nice places to live within 10 minutes of campus (Forest Park near Wash U)." More from this Member | Report Response

"Location" More from this Member | Report Response

"Since it was just a regional interview, nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing negatively impressed me, but I was not thrilled with the facilities and the students did not seem very enthusiastic." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything seemed very average. The medical student tour guides were neither excited nor disappointed about their decision to go to the school. The facilities were not brand new or state-of-the-art, but they seemed adequate and well maintained." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school was very impressive so the only bad thing was the intense heat in the tunnel leading to the hospital" More from this Member | Report Response

"The cost! Oh, the cost! Also, there was no financial aid presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students at lunch WERE ON THE ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE and they did not announce this tiny little fact. This was my sixth interview and all the lunches thus far have been the same (i.e. please feel free to ask us any questions we are NOT on the admissions committee). However, during lunch at SLU the students said please feel free to ask us any questions but left the info on the admissions committee out. I evidently was one of the few who asked and they were honest and said yes, but in my humble opinion they should not make us ask. Instead they should be honest and volunteer such information.

"The facilities look like they could use some updating. Especially the patho lab." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school seemed good but not great, and for the price you would want better than good. Nothing outstanding at all to offer here. The technology seemed outdated. No clinical experience in the first two years. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer kept yawning during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everyone there just seemed kinda blah. All of the students seemed content with the school, but no one seemed really glad to be at SLU. Same with the city. Everyone seemed to think St. Louis was alright, but no one was like, "I love it here". That's too much money to be spending on a school to just be "ok with it"." More from this Member | Report Response

"When you travel from the airport to the school via the Metrolink, you can see that the city does show signs of poverty in certain areas. But it wasn't as bad as people have posted in other interview feedbacks." More from this Member | Report Response

"Almost a little too laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer just asked me questions. We never really had a repoire going. He was very nice, but he didn't seem all that interested in what I said. It was almost like he had a set of questions he wanted to ask me before I got to the interview and was just looking for a standard answer." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer basically said that all my volunteer, doctor shadowing, and health care sector work experiences didn't count in her mind. She said they weren't good enough. She wanted to know why else I wanted to be a doctor. Since I have many, many reasons and experiences, I was able to satisfy her. But, I didn't like that she shot down the main reasons and experiences. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seemed to have a lot more downtime than students at other schools" More from this Member | Report Response

"The city didn't seem that great (of course, I'm from a town of about 80,000 so I don't really like larger cities): too gray, not enough trees, ugly architecture. The atmosphere during the interview wasn't that great either: the students interviewing seemed a little too competitive for my tastes, the facilities were okay but slightly more run down than others I've seen, their were no admissions or financial aid presentations (I was told there was a packet on the desk that I could look through). The faculty did not seem all that interested in the students." More from this Member | Report Response

"minimal scheduling and lots of down-time" More from this Member | Report Response

"COST and lack of financial support other than loans. Necessary to drive to school. Definitely the "other" medical school of St. Louis." More from this Member | Report Response

"old computers in the hospitals, its a really expensive school too." More from this Member | Report Response

"My tour was led by a disgruntled MSIV who ripped on the school the whole time. She seemed to take us by the oldest and dirtiest parts of the school, leaving me the impression that it hadn't been renovated in a long time (I later found out this wasn't true)." More from this Member | Report Response

"It seemed as if he was teaching me more than interviewing me. I thought that interviews were supposed to be about me, however, in all of my interviews, the interviewer talked more than I did. Also, I had to wait about 3 hours between the tour and my interview. When you go to your interviews, bring stuff to do!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tuition, but I knew that going in :p" More from this Member | Report Response

"The weather in St. Louis isn't exactly ideal for me. However the town itself has parts that seem comfortable enough to live in. It's not exciting in the way the that LA or NYC are but STL is better than a lot of people make it out to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"i just don't think much about st. louis as a city in general. if you're looking for a big city with a lot to do or are from a large city, or pretty much anywhere from the east and/or west coasts, you may find it challenging to adjust to midwest life. the downtown was cool but nothing really to do there. st. louis university was in an OK part of town, not much around, but not as scary as some of he reviews here make it seem to be."

"the area of the school was not fantastic. " More from this Member | Report Response

"THe facilities were old and not very nice. It also seems that the school is trying to disown its Jesuit heritage, which is very disappointing. St. Louis is also a pretty putrid city." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, do not know if the area around the medical school is great." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were awful...and I had heard that before, but man. WOW. The carpets were stained, the walls were dirty and dented in, and the whole med school building felt like a dungeon to me. Our tour guide was terrible. He didn't smile once, couldn't say anything exciting about SLU, and told us the only reason he's going there is because it's the only place he was accepted. " More from this Member | Report Response

"SLU hospital isn't exactly luxurious, not horrible, it's just an older facility." More from this Member | Report Response

"The price. Saint Louis U ranks 12th expensive out of the 51 private medical schools yet only ranks 32nd in financial aid. My buddies who go there say they've been extremely proactive with fundraisers, etc so hopefully those stats improve. The library. Nothing inspiring about it. Gets the job done I suppose but as with many schools, I think alot of studying gets done in and around stl. The cockaroaches. Well, I saw two in the hallways so maybe its just coincidence."

"It was a little intimidating to be in an interview group with 30 other people. I know that most schools typically interview 30 people a week, but not all on one day. Also, since you are only given one interview, if it doesn't go well you're screwed. I wish they gave you 2 interviews." More from this Member | Report Response

"really long financial aid presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"the school is a bit stacked on top of itself, it's in a not-so-nice area of STL. I was asked what schools I had interviewed at and been accepted at - i felt like if i told them i was already in a few places that they'd not consider my application as heavily or something. it made me uncomfortable to be asked.

"Small size of "campus," homogenous student body" More from this Member | Report Response

"Getting off the metrolink and "waiting" for the shuttle to pick me up. First, the directions are a little misleading. After you get off the metrolink and go up two flights of stairs you will be directly on the street, there is not a covered area or pull-off from where the shuttle can pick you up (Pretty much just a bus stop on the street). Also by an all day ticket for 4 dollars at the airport. One way is 3 so you might as well save the 50 cents on your way back." More from this Member | Report Response

Make sure to take a coat and possibly gloves, because your hands numb up quickly. Also this school gives decisions quick. I interviewed at the school in mid-December and got an acceptance mid January. Good stuff. " More from this Member | Report Response
