WU is expensive, and intro classes are big, though not enormous. Students and profs are friendly. Bio and chem programs are competitive, and english, acting, architecture, business and classics are some of the good programs, though I only had a single english class. It is difficult to get credit for AP tests, even with fours and fives in some subjects. Overall, it's typical of schools in its class. That is, it is a large private school trying to get a lot of research money, sometimes to the detriment of teaching. Most students aren't intellectual. Some are smart, some are hard workers, and some are rich, but most students are only modestly accomplished. Lots of drinking at Frat parties.
