What impressed you positively?

"The doctor I interviewed with was very nice and didn't talk down to me. That was something that didn't happen at any other interview. Also, the interviewer followed up with me after I had been accepted and told me he hoped that I would choose SLU." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It seemed as if he was teaching me more than interviewing me. I thought that interviews were supposed to be about me, however, in all of my interviews, the interviewer talked more than I did. Also, I had to wait about 3 hours between the tour and my interview. When you go to your interviews, bring stuff to do!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"SLU interviews a lot of people. I was sure that I would not get in, which I think actually helped me because I wasn't nervous when it came time for my interview. I ended up getting in anyway." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We had a tour and then lunch with other med students and doctors. Then the financial rep talked us through this packet of information. She was kind of rude. She seemed really ticked off that we hadn't read through it ahead of time, even though we hadn't had the chance to because we had been doing stuff since we got there. Anyway, after that we all did our interviews and went home. " Report Response
