    Well, I need to get a grip cause I read that and hoped that maybe they have pulled people off in a figurative sense and not yet sent out the emails, which is (obviously) illogical. Thank you for checking btw!

    I saw couple new people added to their facebook group this week so they probably accepted people but those people probably don't post on SDN

    Yeah I also find it really weird that no one on here would’ve been pulled off yet considering how many people reported getting waitlisted.

    Maybe there are significantly fewer spots this year - reducing the odds of someone on SDN reporting being pulled.

    FB shows 185 and that includes 5 Admin. So if 180 of those finally going to SLU then do the math. They have 177 admitted last year as per MSAR.

    Then at this point were just waiting for some of them to be pulled to go somewhere else lol. I guess we'll see some movement in a week or so.

    Hopefully some of those already moved to other schools and forget to let the admin know that they are gone.. so they can be removed from FB.

    Can't decide whether the slu threads from previous years are a good indication of what movement will be like this year or not - so far it doesn't seem that way, unless spots are freeing up more slowly than usual. Just gonna blindly say that maybe next week will be better for us sdn folk. Have a good weekend everybody!

    Has anyone with federal loans from undergrad done something about requesting further deferment during medical school? I contacted my loan service provider and they said that SLUSOM isn't eligible for federally backed programs, including school deferment?? I am super concerned now because there's no way I can make payments on my loans during school.

    Check with SLU Financial people. Hard to believe they dont get federal Grad loans for their students and same goes with deferment. Why they will pick SLUSOM and not other private Med schools. Didn't you get something on your Financial pkg about applying for Grad Plus loans ?
    I read somewhere that undergrad and grad loans are deferred even during Residency. I think you got some wrong info. Let us know with your findings..

    I think it was because my loan service provider used SLUSOM's code to determine the eligibility but when we apply for financial aid, we use the main university's code. I think it's all good now

    do yall think its too late to write a letter of intent for this school? I think they said the wait list rank is static, but then in the same sentence they say to send updates through the portal.

    It's a sign that the cycle is almost over sadly. I'm still hoping for some waitlist love from this school but who knows at this point.

    I’m assuming more movement will occur a week from today since some who were accepted today may turn down the offer by the 1 week deadline

    . You are mixing the 2 thoughts up. Yes you can apply for deferral of Undergraduate loans. SLU has nothing to do with it. You can pay the interest only, or defer the whole ball of wax. Depending on your loan you can defer and just be charged interest without principle. It has nothing to do with med school and what loans they have. Goin on is a totally acceptable reason for deferment.

    Just called the admissions office and the email was not a mistake - they want to update the list. They need to fix the permissions on the form and said we should be able to access it with the original link in ~30 mins. Edit: looks like it's working already.
