What impressed you positively?

"The facilities at the school are really top notch. They are building a new building for students. The hospital complex is enormous and looks to be brand new. There are many research opportunities for those who are interested, and the hospital is well respected in many areas. Rent in very cheap and students can live in a nice apartment for less than 500/month/person. There is a large park across the street from the school. The curriculum is Pass/Fail 1st year. Overall it deserves its reputation as a top 10 school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The curriculum is H/HP/P/F for the final 3 years. While they say its noncompetitive, I find that hard to believe based on this. Second years that talked to us seemed pretty stressed out. St. Louis is not a very safe city (4th most dangerous in country). One person on my interview was mugged, and a friend of mine had 2 girls on his interview get mugged (I think that is pretty outrageous)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The facilities are beautiful but be careful traveling in St Louis especially on the train from the airport to the school (It is NOT safe especially if you are alone, and sadly if you are a woman)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think that the school itself is great. Barnes Jewish and the Children's Hospital are among the best in the country. This brings great research opportunities and clinical opportunities to its students. First year seems great but after that the grading system seems to create a stressful environment. St. Louis seemed like it could be a good place to live but safety was definitely a concern." Report Response
