    I just recieved a postcard saying "your file is complete and is under review by the admissions comittee". My app. was completed in August of last year! I think that 7 months is a bit long for a postcard?!?

    Anyone else get this postcard? Anyone know what is going on in St. Louis?

    theyre so incompetent... they send me someone else's rejection letter!! at first i skipped straight to the middles part and was like "oh well, that school sucked anyway" and about throw it in the trash, when i noticed it wasnt even addressed to me!!

    i called the office and the lady was like "yeah, stuff like that happens, we'll sort it out and let you know. can you just discard the letter please?"

    i was like "um, yeah..."

    :rolleyes:

    They do suck. My secondary was completed back in Sept. and in Dec. they sent me a letter telling me to fill out a secondary and I called them and they told me to disregard the letter. They also sent me a CD describing their program and I got excited and thought an interview offer was on the way back in Dec. To make a long story short my file is still in review. 6 months is a long time for a file to be in review. They need to pull their heads out of you no where! Why are they so incompetent?

    Welcome to SDN, nickmo!! :) Sorry you're having a bad experience with SLU. They seem to be a very lo-tech operation. I hope you're having better luck elsewhere.

    I got the postcard in December (after being complete with everything but my Aug. MCAT way back in September) and the CD in Jan. In mid Jan. I got a letter informing me of a regional interview (no idea why I was not invited to interview at the school) at the end of January. I was annoyed at the short notice, but went, and my interviewer was the most charming man in the world. It's too bad their office staff are so error-prone and inefficient. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="frown.gif" />

    They sent me an invitation for an interview. The day before my interview, I receive another invitation from them in the mail.

    When I got my 'alternate list' letter, some poor guy's 'alternate list' letter was on the back of mine. <img src="http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" alt="" />

Call them to ask of your status might help if you have been waiting for a while, they probably sent your response to someone else! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    I got a snail mail invite from them for an interview today, but nothing in an e-mail. I will withdraw tomorrow.

    Someone mentioned 2-3 weeks for them to get back to you? It's possible, but I'd say that's an optimal time. I go to SLU med. It will take you at least a month if you attend a regional interview as the interviewer still needs to finish those regional interviews and report to the committee.

    Anyways, were on break here at Saint Louis University. However, I think the admissions office is still there. This is usually a really really busy time of year for most schools.

    Peace,

    If you want to find out, call them up. They'll let you know. Heck, I hope you sent that thank you letter the day of your interview too.
