    A number of the students during my interview day spoke very highly of the school actually taking action in response to the issues that were raised. Also, take a look at SLU's match list--They have a pretty impressive number of people going into crazy competitive specialties like anesthesiology or ophtho.

    Does anyone know if SLU accepts post-interview updates? Can't find any information on the website.

    Also, I interviewed in mid-November and was told on interview day that decisions would go out in 4 - 6 weeks... But, the holiday season is coming up, so does that mean we may have to wait longer until after December to hear back?

    Hey Kool2019 if you go to MSAR, that'll give you a much better idea of what kind of stats schools are looking for than asking everyone on these threads.

    You can also often find more information if you click on the user and look at other posts they’ve participated in.

    open file! I think most interviewers spend a decent amount of time looking over your app...

    How close is the medical school campus to bars and dance clubs? Is it close to nightlife that for the young professionals crowd?

    Is there a gym with a squat rack at the medical school campus?

    Does this school even reject people post interview? Didn’t see any post-II rejections on past threads...

    It’s very compartmentalized by neighborhood, mostly in North STL “north of Delmar” or across the river in East STL due to historic and unfortunate racial and economic divides. It is not significantly more dangerous than other medium-large cities in the neighborhoods most med students live. Don’t know anyone who’s been mugged, assaulted or house broken in to.

    Fun areas for that stuff include downtown, central west end, the grove or Soulard. Plenty of bars and clubs within a few miles (10 min drive at most) but not too many within walking distance. Lot of young professionals between SLU, WashU, STLCOP and a decent number of young people with white collar jobs outside of medicine such as accounting, business analysts, engineers etc

    No gym on medical campus but you have full access to undergrad gym maybe a mile away which has 3 or 4 squat racks and overall pretty well equipped, 6? basketball courts, pool, outdoor pool and sand volleyball pit etc. If you purchase a parking pass, parking at the garage next to the gym is included.
