What impressed you positively?

"That SLU isn't as bad as everyone on SDN makes it out to be. The School is in an urban setting and that is how I expect an urban setting to look." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I liked SLU, I think having heard everyone else's opinion has led to a little prejudice but I still can see myself getting a good medical school education. One thing I think SDN is right on the head about is the non-chalant attitude of the students. None of them seemed to be enthralled with their medical school. Second, when I asked about clinical experiences your 1st two years they said it was pretty much up to yourself, and then started talking about all their different simulations and standardized patients in your second year. Most other schools had choices to get their young physicians out learning how best to interact with patients. " Report Response
