Top news story tonight here in St Louis is about a student, accepted to St Louis University medical school informed two days ago that they are rescinding her acceptance (classes start Monday). Without her hearing aid she is 95% deaf, but is proficient at reading lips and had a hearing aid. She had been through the whole interview process and been accepted, but when she asked for special needs access they rescinded the acceptance. EDIT: Some people wanted a link - http://www.ksdk.com/news/news_article_lc.asp?storyid=28681 so now you can read it for yourself. According to the story the student had told SLU about her hearing loss during the application.
