Most Helpful Review for Washington University in St Louis

The classes I have taken have been interesting and challenging. It's a good idea to do some research on the professor, but generally you can expect a good experience. Class size really varies. I've had classes with 12 students, but also classes with 100+. Typically this doesn't affect the quality of the course, or at least it hasn't in my experience.

    It's a school for those who plan to work hard. The campus is beautiful and there's a ton of stuff to do. It looks like the education you will receive will be worth the price tag.

    I love the flexibility WashU offers. I am torn between pursuing graphic design/communication design, or something like international affairs or neuroscience. I know, totally different. But the vibe I got from the admissions officer that visited my school is that you won't be restricted in any way if you change your mind or major. She started out as a fashion design major and then switched later on to pre-med and then graduated something in business or something related, all completing it in the four years. Students also double major, double minor, etc. and its super common, and thats the type of atmosphere I want, where nobody could stop me from learning what I want to learn. The school seems open, which is remarkable to me due to the fact that it also has an art school. Yeah, I know. That was more than three sentences. Note that I'm just researching it.

    WashU is an amazing atmosphere: the school is beautiful, the professors are knowledgeable, and St. Louis is a fun city. However, the academics are hard, especially for those interested in Pre-Health majors (not impossible, just difficult). If you're looking for an academic challenge and a chance to meet some great people, then WashU is for you.

    WashU is a great school for any student interested in an academically rigorous school who also wants to enjoy themselves with friends and extracurricular activities. At times, school is overwhelming, but the hard work is worth it when your free time is spent with amazing people. This school is everything you could want from a college and truly gives the authentic college experience.

    The quality of education I have received at Washington University has been amazing, which I assume is why most people consider Wash U. The faculty there have done real research and are experts in their fields, which has in turn allowed my understanding of different subjects to flourish. However, while the education is around the same caliber, it doesn't have the same name recognition as ivy league schools, I sometimes question the use of my tuition money (extensive lawn care, while beautiful, comes at a high price and is a bit excessive around campus), and a lack of grade inflation puts you at a disadvantage when competing against students from other schools for medical school and other fields that look at GPA.

    When I visited here, I was absolutely blown away. The campus was beautiful, the surroundings were amazing, the people seemed great, and the experience was close to perfect. They really do a great job selling the place.
