Student & Graduate Reviews

4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Saint Louis University is highly-more selective when accepting students. This in of its self is a great advantage for all applicants!! Pros of being a SLU student are limitless. I have enjoyed the flexibility, networking, professional resources provided to me from my professors, peers, various departments, and financial aid has been great! ( I would love more but the amount I was given has met all of my needs) Cons were very few. Being a great student requires lots of sweat equity to maintain a stellar GPA. My only con would be to have more assistance but realistically that could be impossible. Staff members have called/e-mailed me outside of normal hours just to follow up with me. The service provided by them to me has been helpful to my peace of mind. My experience may be exceptional but I can honestly say that SLU goes above and beyond to help meet the needs of their students. Thanks.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2013

If you plan to work in the Saint Louis area it is a great program to be a part due to the large network of Alumni in the area. It is the first year of this program but is very beneficial if you want to do any type of business analytical work. It seems to be tailored to shadow the topics in the CFA Program.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: small program with professors who are really interested in their students; you get to know everyone in the program so there's a good sense of community; knowledgeable faculty from many different areas of the healthcare industry Cons: not sure how strong the alumni network is (although they're working to improve this); all classes are three hours long and because the program is so small, there isn't much room for adjusting your schedule; career services could be improved

Degree: Liberal Arts

Good academics, but don't expect support or compassion--they string you along, then leave you hanging!
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I am in a relatively new graduate program in Biosecurity that is part of the Saint Louis University School of Public Health. Although it is young, most of the core courses are offered online, and that is the pro of the program because it is so much more convenient for working adults. The con is that since the program has only been around since 2001, they have a smaller faculty, which is great for creating a "close knit" environment, but it also means the faculty can be stretched thin in their efforts to perform all the duties required for the position. Overall, I am very pleased with the program and very happy that I chose this field of study.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in my first year of Law School at SLU and so far have really enjoyed the experience. I know SLU is not ranked very highly on the "magic" US News & World Reports ranking system, but I chose to attend for their #1 Health Law Program and for the great scholarship opportunity. I was awarded entry to and visited other schools, many in the Top 50, a few in the Top 20, and still chose SLU for the warmness of the faculty and students and their sincere interests in advancing the career of health law. I think if you want to practice in Missouri or the surrounding area, SLU has a very good local reputation, perhaps even better than that of Washington University, the local Top 20 school. I wouldn't recommend it for people who eventually want to move out of the area or practice in a field other than health law, where SLU's network really shines. I can't compare it to any other law school because I haven't attended any other schools; however, I think the education I have received so far has been top notch and if SLU is having some internal problems in their E-suite, it really doesn't affect student life. There are plenty of drinking and partying opportunities if you are into that kind of stuff. I would like to see more student activities that DON'T involve getting stupid drunk; the student "clubs" don't really seem to do much in the way of actually networking or advancing our legal skills. Nonetheless, I would recommend SLU to anybody who was interested.

The program is flexible, works well for working adults, class choice sometimes is less than desirable. Overall the experience has been very good.
