For the medical program, it is very ironic that the school doesn't find it necessary to have enough professors for the Chemistry program. In other words, there is one professor for the Chemistry lecture and one for the lab-for over 300 students. Both professors are arrogant, rude and unprofessional. The passing grade is a 40. That's right, a 40. Why should there be such a grade curve? Because the class is just that awful. If you are a nursing or other medical student, do not waste your time with SLU. The idea is not to teach you information, it is to see if you can pass. I am a parent of a college aged person; however, I am also a student-at SLU. There is no way I would send my child here. The students and parents are being ripped off. For over $30k a year, I would expect quality, not just getting by. One of my other classes was a complete joke, but it was not a medical related class. YOU SHOULD FULLY EXPECT A MEDICALLY RELATED JOB TO HAVE A QUALITY CHEMISTRY PROGRAM. The lab and the lecture didn't even match. Neither professors knew what the other was doing, but the lab was suppose to be based on what you were learning in lecture. This was the most disorganized thing I have ever seen. Whenever I confronted either professor, neither one cared and said that they didn't know what the other was doing. REPEAT: Both of these women were very disorganized and had the crappiest attitude I've ever seen from a "teacher". Several of the other students complained alot, but because they are alot younger, I believe that they just think that's the way it is. I was very impressed with the quality of student that SLU attracts. Most of the people I was in class with were there for a reason. It's a shame that they are being short changed in their education. In closing, I have already had a full professional career from which I retired. I am 40 years old and really desired a new challenging career. Sadly SLU is the only university in the area that offers my program and I do not forsee being a student past this next semester(only staying because of financial reasons). Do yourself a favor, if you are a medical program student, stay far away.
