    So, ok congratulations to those who got accepted this year. Southern Illinois is one of the two [other being UIC] that is in IL but I haven't seen much threads or information about it.

    I believe the class is like 50? [smaller than UIC..] but certainly someone must have been accepted to that school or even interviewed there. Can people post their specs and interview experiences of that school?

    Also, it is a given that it will prefer in-state people but I have also heard that SIUE further prefers downstate people?

    :p My girlfriend is from Carbondale so SIUE is definitely one of the top schools on my mind. I do hear that they highly prefer instate applicants though...

    So I guess the rumor about favoring downstaters is true though they won't admit it since they have to treat everyone in-state as equal? :idea:

    What were your specs? Did you have a degree since SIUE is kind of lax on the number of hours you need to apply unlike UIC's at least 90 semester hours...

    I'm A SIUE Grad.....

    I can tell you I got an excellent dental education at SIUE. I can also tell you that, socially, it was like being locked up in jail for 4 years. My social and personal development got put on the back burner for the whole time I lived in Alton. However, life is good with a DMD behind your name when it's all over.

    ----------
    Is it expensive to live near the dental school?
    Is it safe?
    Any suggestions on places to live?
    How do you think the job market is for say, spouses of dental students?
