|Students who got into WAU say:|
Essay (3) |
| | I grew up in a rural area, but attended a university's laboratory school (innovative curriculum and opportunity to enroll in college courses for free while in high school). I was in the top 10% of my class and active in everything from music to sports to service. I also did a summer program for high school students at Wash U which I think helped me get in. I was a National Merit Commended Scholar, but only had a 30 on my ACT. The competition just keeps getting fiercer. I am not sure I would get in now.
I toured the school and interviewed. To be honest I didn't expect to get in.
