What have you guys said, when asked by an interviewer why you want to attend SLU? What's special about this school? I really can't find any special features about it?

#1. They're accredited.

Distant second: they have a pretty flexible curriculum that allows for some electives during the third year. This is unusual and helpful if you're contemplating an SFMatch specialty or just something very competitive.

They also have a required elective during the first and second years, which allows early participation in research if you like or early exposure to a specialty of interest or participation in a community health experience. You can choose one of several electives that have already been set up or you can find a mentor and design your own.

The list of electives is listed at...
