|Students who got into WAU say:|
Essay (3) |
I transferred to Washu in '99. It seems that every year the admissions rate goes down. I would recommend really getting involved in high school. Get involved in something, doesn't matter what. If you want to volunteer, start a group; if you want to do research, work with a professor at a local college and do interesting work. Make yourself standout. Oh, and get a super-high SAT score :)

| Mar 02 2005 | I got a perfect score on both SAT and ACT, and graduated high school at age 14. I had little interest in the star-f***ing that goes on at Harvard and Yale, so I came to Washington University. I got a full scholarship. Don't both applying to difficult programs unless you have 1480+(Sat). The mathematics and economics courses are so hard, most of mine have had about a 30% retention rate. This school is elite, and not for those who want to coast by and attend myriad keggers.
I found WUSTL on a college search website. I visited in the summer. I spoke with other students from my hometown and high school who attended Wash U. I applied Early Decision and interviewed in my hometown of Houston. I was accepted before Christmas.
You have to have it all. Top GPAs and test scores are necessary but not enough. Do something interesting with yourself in high school
