    Just got the waitlist letter from SLU. Crap...that acceptance letter would have been nice. I interviewed on 3/4 and the letter states that I was chosen for the list over numerous applicants and that I have been ranked (I guess they try and make you feel better). Anyway whats the movement like off the waitlist and when does movement start. I know SLU's website says everyone should know by april 15th if accepted, rejected, or waitlisted.

        Just called the admissions office at SLU and they told me they were going to be interviewing until the first or 2nd wk in May. She said the waitlist movement wont begin until then. I went ahead and sent my letter of intent, now the wait begins.

            Welcome to the alternate club...I got my letter from SLU on Friday. I emailed to find out where I was on the list, but they don't give that info out. Oh well.... :p

              Though I was accepted by neither of these, the only reason I would choose MU over SLU is if you have a strong personal reason to live in St. Louis.

              The students at MU were nice, relaxed, and seemed quite happy. The tuition is so much cheaper, that I can really see no justification in going to SLU over MU. The reputations are about the same, as far as I am concerned.

              Having said that, I am married and have a close network of friends and family in STL. If I would have been accepted to both, I would have considered SLU strongly, based on personal reasons.

                I am living proof that the SLU waitlist moves!

                I got the waitlist letter at the end of February, and three weeks later, I got an acceptance letter. The list is ranked, so I'm not sure how much good it did, but I did send a letter of interest to Dr. Willmore. All I know is that SLU gave me my first acceptance.

                Good luck to all of you!

                P.S. I had a regional interview, so I have yet to see the SLU campus. What did you all think?

                  Jet, I dont know how updating them helps since weve been ranked plus I dont have anything to update them with except maybe a new cell phone number. I sent a letter of intent and thats about all that can be done now.

                    I have an interview on April 22. When I scheduled it, I was sure that it was probably the last day of interviews there, but it looks like there will be at least 2 more weeks after I'm there.

                      Do you send a letter of interest to the admissions office c/o Dean Wilmore???? or is there another address specifically for the dean??? As for the updates, I was just wondering cause I do have updates like abstracts etc..... that I can send. My waitlist letter says to send updates but it also says that the waitlist is ranked so I'm confused on that matter........

                        I just emailed my interviewer about the waitlist at SLU. I was told that the waitlist isnt that big...under 200. SLU will give out about 400 acceptances this yr to fill the class and many of these seats will come from the the waitlist. Thus guys being in the alternate club might not be that bad.
