    Sorry for my lack of reading comprehension (rip 126 CARS) but are you saying that they no longer are on probation?

    The LCME is going to visit in September/October to officially take them off. I go to SLU as an undergrad, and this is what they told me.

    Not officially, but everything is already set and a timeline of events from the initial probation status is outlined through the link.

    I interviewed there this week and they implied that they are unfortunately really behind in the process. Told us that the earliest we would possibly hear is 6 weeks (lol) and that it'll probably be longer than that. Sucks but what could we do

    I interviewed a few weeks ago and they told us 7 weeks, so I'll take the news about 6! I think that they also said that all decisions will be made and sent out by April 1st....

    It was pretty difficult to get answers about why they have had issues with accreditation. The faculty interviewer and the students I met all basically said that there are no issues that affect students, which I find impossible to believe. I wouldn't press too hard, because they're evaluating you and how interested you are in the school.

    Sorry this is the impression you got.
    First, none of the students are evaluating you. The lack of interest to talk about accreditation stems from the fact that it has been and continues to be taken care of. We have good leadership on it and the changes that have been made in the last year have only improved an already solid school. The entire process has been very transparent and all the students get regular updates. The final report goes to the LCME in May. The LCME will visit in July and hopefully our probation will be lifted shortly after. Hope this helps!

    didnt both slu and the accreditation committee release documents that outline what went wrong and how they were going to fix it? I believe all the info would be in those documents.

    I interviewed last week and actually had a bit of a different experience. During my interview, the faculty member actually brought it up himself and what they are doing about it (more formal feedback forms, improving documentation for LCME related statistics, the new dean is apparently putting alot more work into the school than the last one) and didn't see it himself as an issue. Also when someone asked the student tour person they were really chill about it and pretty much said the same stuff that the faculty member did. I choose to believe that they are fixing their problems and it won't really affect the students just by how transparent and clear they were about what is happening.

    Anyone know how many people are accepted off the alternate/wait list? Are letters of intent important for this school?

    Just called Financial Aid office. They said 2-3 more weeks to find out about our fin aid and scholarship stuff. Basing off med school deadlines, we may not know for a very long time.

    May is right after the multiple acceptance deadline so that's when a lot of movement will happen. But hang in there- slower movement happens before then too.

    At this point people are still hoarding acceptances all over.

    Interviewed 1/30 or so, got alternate list email today. Not super surprising, given how late it is in the cycle.

    They still give out acceptances. they keep spots open throughout the entire period, and if you look through last years thread, some people who interviewed in February got accepted directly

    looking through this year's thread, it seems like >90% of people who interviewed in January or later are getting placed on the alternate list.

    Should waitlist-ers send a letter of intent?
