What impressed you positively?

"the students were all pretty laid back and the faculty seemed concerned about student learning. the dean of admissions even came to eat lunch with us and answer questions making the administration seem pretty accesible. to be honest, i wasn't expecting much of the school but the overall laid-back attitude made me feel better about it." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing really." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"this was only my second interview so i was still pretty nervous going into it. i prepared for the usual questions (i.e. what sets you apart? what is your biggest strength/weakness? what would you do if you couldn't be a physician? etc.) but my interviewer didn't even ask all the questions i was expecting. she basically covered everything in my file and asked me about my activities, my research, my family, everything that any applicant should easily know the answers to. overall, i think she did a good job covering what needed to be covered and for my part, having even one interview under my belt helped boost my confidence tremendously. she kept telling me that this would be the most stressful part of the day, but it wasn't even that stressful."
