What was the most interesting question?

"We had a fascinating discussion about race and identity in the US and in the Northwest...we had both gone to college in the Northwest and lived in Africa at some point during our college years, but about 20 years apart. It was nice that they went to the effort to match me to someone with similar interests." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was asked specific questions about "flaws" in my academic transcript (i.e. C's and one Withdrawl). I was grateful for the opportunity to discuss them though; as a Chemical Engineering student my two C's were in classes where the majority of my classmates also earned C's, but you can't put that on a transcript!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Got a recent copy of my transcript for my admissions file, glanced over my applications, relaxed and went to the Gateway Arch the day before..." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students were all very nice and answered all of my questions. I stayed with two second year students (through a interview stay program arranged through the second year class) and that helped me see what life was like for them better. It was a good experience overall." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't exactly fall in love with the city or the school. I liked it and would be happy there, but there just isn't as much there as you would expect." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The public transportation system in St. Louis isn't nearly as good as I expected and the city's not that safe (especially around the medical school campus). I would almost have to have car to function at SLU." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was good. I like the non-confrontational style and the brevity of the day (it wasn't all drawn out). SLU makes a real effort to welcome you into their community and show you what it would be like to be one of them." Report Response
