| Wash U is a great school- great resources and facilities, lots of engaging professors and smoothly run. A little too smoothly--Wash U feels very corporate in a lot of ways. They really pamper you, at the expense of experience of coping with anything outside of the heavy workload. I've made a handful of good friends here and if you are reasonably social there are always plenty of things to do. But I'm not sure there is anything outside of maybe smaller classes and good dining hall food that I couldn't have gotten at a public school in Virginia, where I'm from. That route would have saved me lots of money, but even with the drawbacks I have discussed, Wash U gives an outstanding, heavily guided education. It's hard to fall through the cracks here. |

| I transferred to Washington University in St. Louis from an art school (unnamed because the school was great- I just didn't want to be an artist), and I've never regretted it. One of the only problems is the obscene price tag on everything from food to housing, which is why so many move off campus when they can. |
I'm an economics major, and I feel like the teachers are great, and there's not too much competition for getting into the upper level classes. Many people are pre-med, though quite a few give up and go into other majors because it's so difficult and competitive. My friends in the business school seem to be the most relaxed, and have the least work to do. Extracurriculars are awesome, and almost everyone is heavily involved in at least one activity. The school and the various clubs invite many speakers to the campus, and there's always something to do. The party life is great, but everyone's a hard worker as well. I really love it here.

| I love WASHU.|
They were helpful in many ways. First, I received great financial aid and guidance on how to manage my loans. Second, I had a friendly and knowledgeable advisor that still knows me when I am around campus. Third, I gained a great network and an Ivy League education. Lastly, Washu has a strong academic focus but also it is very community focus. I was able to volunteer in the community and to be an agent of change. Washu is a top university, you can't go wrong here. As an international, I appreciate how much effort is put into globalizing the campus and the classroom.
