I really enjoyed my time at the school. Even though it is in the mid-west (I am a native New Yorker) I found plenty of great people from NYC. There are also lots of Californians too! Classes were good, though I thought there could be more grade inflation. If 50% of the students at Harvard are getting A's, then we should too since we have to compete with them in the job market (

Student life is pretty good. People are friendly and not pretentious. Though people don't seem intellectual, even though our admissions stats are really high. From keeping up with the campus newspaper, they are getting a bit dry, which I find unfortunate. I wasn't in a frat, but frats were a real credit to the campus. 4 years ago anyone could go to a frat party, get free beer and have fun. It wasn't until I talked to friends at other schools that our frats were really great, friendly, open groups. Also, even though it isn't a big city, the area that St.Louis is in is very affluent and you get all the perks of that (great parks, shopping, resturants, botantical gardens, etc)

They keep building nice, new shiny dorms.. that's good. Also they just raised over 1.6 Billion fairly quickly.

I think they engineering career service has to get a little bit better. Now that I help recruit for my company, I realize that lots of other schools career services have it together better than WashU. And they really need to promote the name more. If I didn't co-op (which I found on my own), I wouldn't have found a decent job.
