What impressed you positively?

"the MD i met with was awesome... great guy... our interview went a half hour over the allotted time period with neither of us realizing it... he just described the types of students and curriculum that SLU was trying to work with which I found impressive." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"if you fly into st. louis, you should know that the cheapest way to get to the school is the metrolink train. for some reason my student hosts didn't want to pick me up at school and so they gave me directions to their place and i had to pay a $40 cab fare to get there... the next day I paid $1.50 to get from the school back to the airport using the train. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall a very relaxed interview itself. The rest of their presentation wasn't the best since all we did was a quick tour and they gave us some packets, but I still liked the campus and the students in their first year class seemed pretty motivated and disciplined which was nice to see."
