    Keep in contact with the school to show interest and definitely make a visit. A stellar academic record helps. If you get wait listed, visit the school again to show how committed you are! Good luck!

    My advice would be to stay connected with your admission counselor. Having the high GPA and test scores is not everything a prestigious college like WashU looks at. Being well rounded and in contact with admissions (not stalking) will increase your chances of admissions. Also, acceptance into WashU is not impossible, so stay motivated and just apply.

    If you are searching for a school with a great football team or a lot of athletic spirit washU may not be the place for you. However, we do get fantastic speakers (including Bill Clinton and Joseph Gordon-Levitt). You will definitely have to study here, but I have never had a difficult time meeting one-on-one with a professor or finding help from peers, study groups, etc. It's a very academically challenging but fun environment, and it reflects in the inquisitive, quirky and happy students.

    Washington University has a low admittance rate. Make sure your test scores reflect your capability and write an interesting essay.

    I feel like this lends itself best to a list format, so here goes: -Be ready for a jump in difficulty, not only are all colleges a lot harder than high school, WashU is known for its challenging subject matter. -Get involved in campus life/clubs! They are a fantastic way to meet new people on campus who have similar interests to you, and some will become friends who you'll stick with through college. -Meet the professors. I was slow on this one, but that doesn't mean that anyone else should be. Every class in WashU is taught by a professor (no TA's) and they're all experts in their respective fields. Talking to them will give you a chance for a letter of recommendation later on or even a job/research! Most of all, they're fascinating people who'll give you great insight into their subject. -GO THROUGH ST. LOUIS. In all honesty it doesn't have the wide appeal of a city like Boston, but it has some great digs that anyone and everyone should check out (Pappy's first though - ribs that good are hard to come by).
