Washington University in St. Louis Reviews
The academics are tough, a lot of your general freshman classes will be a rude awakening from high school. Too many students obsess over keeping their high school GPA, just let that go. The dorms are rather cheaply done and the food isn't very healthy. I wish there was more to do around campus for non Greeks. Most students don't even venture off campus into the city.
Good, academically strong school with many resources for postgrad employment. Financial aid can be a bit rough, but students here are relatively cognizant of how privileged they are and do not exclude others based on socioeconomic status.
Their tours are great and coaches are VERY nice and devoted. There is an excess of school spirit that you can feel as you walk through campus. Their academics are rigorous but prepare you very well.
