What are your general comments?

"I was surprised because this was the first school I interviewed at where there was not a single student who completely LOVED the school. No random students came up to us saying "you guys should definitely go here!" Even our tour guide, when she asked her how it was basically gave the impression that it was "ok" While there seemed to be positives about the school, it seemed as if everyone had something to complain about. When we were on the tour, our tour guide said she couldn't show us the anatomy lab because of OSHA regulations. I didn't really care too much because I assume every anatomy lab looks pretty much the same, but I was confused why she cited OSHA regulations when I've been able to see anatomy labs at every other school. I was also disappointed that we didn't get to see the children's hospital because it is supposedly a nice facility. While I realize that SLU is not the highest ranked medical school and probably feels as if it is in the shadows of its neighbor, it seemed as if the entire school already accepted its inferiority and was trying to hide the fact instead of focusing on its strengths. My interviewer asked me where I had interviewed, and when she heard and looked at my stats, she said "Oh, I'm sure you'll get accepted many places" and I got the vibe that she was implying I wouldn't attend SLU because I was too good for it. I think I would've been more impressed if they showed pride in SOMETHING, but it felt more like being on a date with someone who lacked total confidence in him/herself." Report Response
