"The very impersonal welcome given by the admissions staff. There was no group introduction at the beginning of the day.

"SLU is a much nicer and bigger city than I pictured. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The impression I got from seeing the students is that the student body is very laid back and not overly serious about their studies. I was told that while most people study a lot, the class of 07 is a "semi-alcoholic" one meaning that a ton of people go to bars throughout the week. So the overall impression I got wasn't of a very serious study body as a whole. The admissions staff did not give us a warm welcome by any means and that leaves me with a negative to neutral taste in my mouth of SLU after leaving. The facilities are nice however. The interviewer, Dr. Cooper, was not especially nice and cut me off several times when I was answering her questions to keep the interview going. " Report Response
