Overall Rating

Saint Louis University is definitely a good school, but it mainly focuses on the biggest academic areas, such as engineer, physical therapy, and pre-medicine. As an Art student, I felt that my program was greatly overshadowed and that no one felt the same passion for the arts as I did. I would recommend it for people interested in those fields, but for anyone pursuing other goals, I would suggest another school that puts more effort into those programs.
