Yes, i believe so. But you can go ahead if you dont mind spending money.
How long before your interview day did you find out the time of your interview?
I found out who my interview was with and what time about a week after I scheduled the interview, a month and a half beforehand.

I was placed on the alternate list today. Interviewed 10/2
How optional is research and community service at this school? Is it unranked P/F curriculum? How easy is it to find free events like music festivals in St. Louis?
Edit: Also, I know that lectures are not mandatory. are there any mandatory class sessions that we’re not told about at the interviews?
What does a regular day as an M1 look like - when does class start and end?
Also do we get an acceptance letter in the mail?
II today! I sent an ITA request a few weeks before I received this.
In orientation week there are service activities, you could probably skip them if you hate meeting people but t's more social than anything. Neither research nor service is required, but both are available. Lots of free clinics/outreach is available.
Not an M1 anymore but usually class 9A-12P? Can watch recorded lectures online if you want. Anatomy is different as it will have dissection every other day for about 3-4 hours. Classes often have (mandatory) labs 1-2 times a week in the afternoon where you are taught in a small group setting. Overall M1-2 is pretty chill, lets you direct your learning however works for you. Wellness here is actually giving you time off to do other stuff and have a life rather than obsessive mandatory lectures.

Accepted. OOS, interviewed 9/24.
Accepted yesterday! OOS, Interviewed 10/8.
Does anyone have any tips for the interview? I'm getting mixed signals from the SDN interview feedback site about how some people were just asked to re-explain their activities while others were asked different questions... And how long did the interview itself last?
Can anyone speak on interview day in general? I'm a little confused by how the interview is scheduled separately from the rest of the day, which seems to only last from 10:40-1.
my interview was scheduled in the morning before presentations at 10:40 so after my interview I just chilled with the other applicants in the conference room. Everyone with a morning interview finished before the 10:40 call-time. From 10:40-1, there's presentations, tours, and lunch with medical students. All applicants are present for this block of time. After that, you can leave if you had your interview in the morning. People with afternoon interviews had to stay obviously. hope this helps!
Can you talk about specific research activities/labs? I was looking for labs to talk about during my interview but I couldn't find anything specific online
I'm not the best one to ask, I have done a lot of other extracurriculars but not a ton of research. If you have a particular focus (for example cardiology) look up the important people in that department on pubmed and see if their research interests you.
I think few of my classmates did bench research. Those that did are going into research-heavy fields (rad-onc), had a lab from undergrad in which they continued to pursue research, or pursued MD/PhD. Most people's research is clinical, typically retrospective review stuff which they found by joining an interest group, meeting with faculty in that field and showing interest, when these people needed someone to abstract data from hundreds of charts then they found the student that was interested, had some free time and was easily available.
Edit: here's another site SLU Newsroom some recent highlights: HepB research/vaccine development, head and neck cancer related to suicide risk, liver transplant rejection, youth HIV testing, geriatrics.
Does anyone know when SLU sends out more information about logging into online portals like email or canvas? When I'm trying to look at it through the mySLU portal, it won't let me log in to anything more
Do they call or email?
They email! Is anyone else having trouble with the SLUNet ID? I can log in but I can't pay the $100 deposit?
Got an II! By the time I had finished deciding which date I wanted though, the only available date was 5 days from now, so I chose that one. I just read that it took someone else a week after they scheduled to find out when their interview was, but I don't have a week? Is this usual to have an interview scheduled for the next 5 days? I hope it wasn't a fluke!
II! Only days left were December
Anyone who interviewed here knows what time the interview day starts and ends? Trying to get plane tickets
II today as well, complete mid July.
For those who have uploaded an update, does it indicate that your update has been uploaded under “Document Upload” or anywhere else in the app portal? Im not sure if my document has been uploaded because I couldnt see it anywhere. Thanks
it will depend on if you have morning or afternoon interviews. I'm not sure how early morning interviews are but I know for afternoon interviews they usually will not go past 3:30 so you should be good booking tickets that leave STL after 6!
I interviewed here and would like to send my interviewer a follow-up email. Admissions staff said to upload a thank-you to the portal when I asked for the interviewer's email address, but that seems kind of strange to me. Has anyone sent a thank-you or other email to their interviewer, and how did you get their address/did you just upload to portal?
I just emailed my interviewer directly. He gave me his business card so I thought it was OK. I can’t recall admissions given specific instructions regarding thank you notes.
II yesterday as well! OOS.
Can you tell me when you submitted your secondary? Thanks
I just mailed a thank you note to the address of the admissions office with my interviewer's name on it!
I got the complete and under review email on 7/30.
Silence today? That’s strange...
Has anybody interviewing on 11/13 heard about details for dinner tonight on 11/11?
Accepted! Interviewed mid-late October. The email came on Friday and went to my junk box.

A buddy of mine just got an II after being complete in July! So July people have hope please
we are trying but the wait is intense lol
For those who were accepted, are we supposed to both submit the 100$ deposit on MySLU, AND click "accept" under admission offer tab on our portal?
I just want to make sure I'm doing it right and not either: 1) missing something and not holding my place at SLU, or 2) effectively accepting the offer officially and removing myself from consideration from other schools via AMCAS.
I don't think number 2 is possible until Spring, but yeah go to the portal page and click the accept offer and then pay the deposit on mySLU. Then you should get an email with a notification. I just followed these instructions (although link is for undegrad but instructions worked for me) Confirm Your Enrollment
I just got a supplemental app today. Is it worth it to compete it this late in the cycle?
My thought is if they sent it they're interested, and if they're interested there still must be space in their class. Up to you! I would weigh out how much you like them vs. financial cost of applying now.
When did everyone hear back about student hosts after filling out the google form?
After about 3 weeks of not hearing anything, I sent an email to the student host program... Because it was 1 week out from my interview day and they didn't have any contact with me. Then, a few days later I got an email from the med student I would be staying with. I highly recommend emailing 1 - 2 weeks before your interview day if you haven't heard anything
For anyone who was scheduled for the 1pm interview, when did your interview day end? I'm trying to figure out when to book a flight back the same night... Thank you
If you have the interview at 1pm its your last thing, so you can leave around 2 depending on how long it takes.
Do you mind sharing stats?
OOS, ORM, LM~70
