Has anyone not heard back? I interviewed January 23rd and nothing at all
anyone got the new match list?
Would also like to know this.
Here you go!
Match List 2018 : SLU
This might be a stupid question but what do people look for in match lists? I'm assuming how many people match into competitive specialties and at which hospitals right?
Are the hospital rankings the same as the medical school rankings? And which specialties are considered competitive and which ones are consider not as competitive?
100% ortho match this year!
Does SLU have a second look?
For some reason no. But you can contact the school if you wanna take another tour of the campus
Does anyone know how long the post-committee deliberation takes? Called and said I was presented on Wednesday.
damn i didn't know you can call and ask that :O, also when did you interview?
Last week of Jan
If they presented you last week you'll probably hear back this Friday. That was my experience anyway. Goodluck!
They usually hand out decisions on fridays based on this forums
When do they start pulling people off the waitlist. Just got alternate listed
Just got put on the alternate list. Any info? Like is it ranked or rate of acceptance from the list?
From MSAR: "The alternate list is a ranked list. The ranking of this list is kept confidential by the Committee on Admissions."
Also just got put on the alternate list.
When did you interview?
Last week of january
+1 to the alternate list. Interviewed beginning of February.
With 516 MCAT you have zero Acceptances in MD just mind boggling, you should have at least 2 Acceptances with those Stats.
Hope you get off those Alternate lists
On 3 waitlists currently, still need to hear back from 3 schools... sigh.
Accepted yesterday, interviewed in February
When do alternate list ppl usually start getting pulled off?
From now until July. But the biggest jump is the deadline for multiple acceptances
Ill take "Now" for 1000.
Has anyone been awarded financial aid yet?
Nope, haven’t heard back on anything yet.
They told me “1 more week” on March 3rd. I called back like March 11th and they said “2-3 more weeks” safe to say we won’t find out for a very long time.
anybody know if they accept these or if they are worthwhile?
They do accept letters uploaded to the secondary website's Document Upload section. I was accepted two weeks after uploading my letter, but I'm unsure how much of an effect it had on the acceptance.
If I may ask, how long and detailed was your letter?
It was about 1 and 1/3 pages long. I’d say it was pretty detailed, in terms of why I want to attend SLU.
Damn..... That's long af. I was thinking of making it short just because I wouldn't want them to read a full essay.
I would keep LOIs to about a page in length double spaced
Yeah, I was thinking of filling a page using a formal letter format.
Yeah mine was def an essay- I had a lot to say and didn’t want to regret not saying it if u know what I mean
Haha got it. How long after you got waitlisted did you send the LOI?
Just figured I'd give you guys a head's up...the financial aid awards have been made and you can view them on mySLU.
Anybody else staring at 300K and thinking that number is really big? Holy crap guys that’s a lot of debt.
"and to teach them [medicine], if they want to learn it, without fee or indenture"
If only medical schools took the Hippocratic Oath...
I wish I could up vote this more than once...especially w/ the massive loans I'm about to have
Did anyone see their 5k or 10k scholarship? If so where? I literally have 8$ in my checking account and I don’t think I got a 5k scholarship.
a scholarship would most likely take effect by reducing your tuition, not by putting money in your checking account. Not sure if I read that correctly.
I just saw loans on mine (and my EFC is showing as $0), but I'd also be curious to know if anyone has a scholarship showing in their award.
Does anyone know how much the waitlist moves?
You are right. No financial aid for me, but have been offered a generous amount of loan that'll put me in debt for a million years. Go Billikens!
The Cost of Attendance feels a bit inflated IMO. I'm just going with the tuition which is still unsettling.
It showed up on my financial aid letter as "SLU Endowed Scholarship" listed right before my federal loans.
