What are your general comments?

"Given some of the negative comments I'd heard about SLU, I was impressed overall. They are building a new research facility, but it won't be done for a few years. All other facilities, including the hospitals are old. I repeatedly asked about the safety of the city and it seems that by avoiding certain areas of the city, one can remain very safe. My interviewer showed up 45 minutes late, and the presentations about the school were short and lacked important information. My interviewer had a strange style, but I liked him." Report Response
