    Does "SLU" refer to St. Lawrence University or to St. Louis Univ.? Similiar to "USC"- South Carolina or Southern California.

    i was at the presidential weekend interview and I asked the lady who was director of SLU college of medicine. She mentioned that 1500 people applied and 60 or so will get in. The thing with SLU medical scholars is that they want to see what you have accomplished as a whole person. Though you might have a 2400, 36, 4.00, if your a couch potato, then you won't get in.

    32 act, ~4.2 GPA. I got in. I also got the Dean's scholarship for a total of 44,000. 9k/year tuition and 2k/year room and board.

    I don't really want to go though. Saint Louis isn't exactly the best college town, and SLU's med school isn't the greatest either.

    And I highly doubt that 1500 people applied for this thing. My MSAR says that a little over 200 people applied in the 04-05 entering class.

    everybody is saying they dont want to go.

    its your loss. pros outweigh the cons. A 45% acceptance rate into med school isn't what i look forward to. Residency is what really matters.

    A 45% acceptance rate into med school isn't what i look forward to.

    These programs usually only admit kids who they know would be strong enough candidates to be admitted through the normal application process. So 45% is not the relevant statistic.
    Residency is what really matters.
    If even. But, if you really are aiming for a high-powered residency, there are some schools that are better for that than others. Examine SLU's Match List and see if those are the specialties and hospitals you'd like to match into.

    what you mentioned is totally true... And i will check the matchlist

    in response to the other person... i sincerely believe that SLU's rating as a medical school is not as good as other because of its endowment, alumni giving rate and other small factors which add up. Though the average mcat scores are not as good as harvard or wash u, they beat amazing schools such as mayo and are tied with dartmouth and boston etc. SLU's ranking as a whole, college of medicine and undergraduate is slowly increasing in ranks. I am assuming there will be a huge jump when the new multimillion dollar arena and research building are finished next year.

    As has been mentioned numerous times before, the educational quality of medical schools is about the same. If you like St. Louis and the finances work out, there's no reason not to take this opportunity.
