I transferred from the University of Miami (FL) because the kids there were more interested in getting a degree so as to get a well-paying job as opposed to learning cool things. WashU has surpassed all of my expectations in this regard. The kids are all very bright, but you won't find any of the Ivy league elitism here (even though WashU out-ranks alot of them in most popular college rankings). In fact, a good number of professors here are refugees from the big names because they specifically wanted to get out of the Ivory Tower atmosphere of the ivy leagues. In short, come to WashU if you want a fantastic education from some of the leading minds in the field, an intelligent but unpretentious student body, and the resources afforded by one of the wealthiest schools in the nation. The only real negative is the poor name recognition. Expect to get a lot of "go huskies" and the like from the uninitiated ;)
