1. Academics: People are SMART and care about what they do. It's impossible to do all the reading, but you'll need to do lots of work you don't need to turn in!
2. Academics: Our school has so many academic resources for the students, and most everyone is willing to help you out if you are struggling in a class--for pre-meds, this tends to be a constant state of being. The professors are all so willing to talk to you and help you understand material. Registration is pretty stream-lined, but sometimes getting into the classes you want, or required classes is tough because they are in high demand and low supply. There are so many places on campus to study: study rooms in the dorms, the 5 floor library, dining areas, even outside if it's nice.
3. Academics: The business school is more professional than any of the other four schools at Wash U. You start learning how to dress and prepare for interviews the first month or two of class. They have incredible resources available to you, the professors are all intelligent, assessable, and eloquent when it comes to teaching, and you can really tell their teaching comes first, even before research. There's always a ton of free food and Olin just opened their newest building this past January. Though it can get competitive at times and you are sometimes compared with your peers as far as grades go, I have absolutely no worries about landing an incredible, stable job to start at after graduation.
4. Academics: Similar to what I said above, the business school professors are really great, and put their students before their research. The facilities available to business students are incredible and there's always free food. Classes can get challenging and grades are curved against one another, so classes can get more competitive than in arts and sciences classes. That being said, Olin is nowhere near as competitive as other top notch business programs. The workload is challenging but very practical and useful for your future career. Go and study in the new business school building, Bauer hall. It's incredible in there.
5. Majors: No matter the school you are applying to the admissions rate is the exact same. That's because most students change not only their major but also their school while at Wash U (a lot of times from arts and sciences into the business school). Majors are flexible and it is easy to double major. The flexibility of curriculum at Wash U was one of the most appealing aspects for me.
6. Majors: Every summer I have had applicable and highly useful internships. After my freshman year I interned at an asset management firm, after sophomore year I did economic research at a leading industry report writing firm, and after my junior year I had a management consulting internship at a top 10 firm. Additionally on campus I was a microeconomics teaching assistant for many semesters.
7. Majors: Getting into the different schools, cross studying between them, or even changing majors or the schools you study in is rather streamlined. The application process is pretty easy, and most students appreciate the way its set up without extra supplements and such. When many apply to many schools at once, ours was a breath of fresh air. A tip would be to show yourself as a well-rounded applicant--it's not all academics, its not all clubs, its not all community service. It's a well balanced blend.
8. Majors: There are a ton of opportunities to get involved in positions on campus, most having to do with your major. Many professors have positions to offer if the student merely asks and shows interest in their work. The career center and advisers are very helpful in finding summer or winter break internships.
9. Diversity: The campus grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the surrounding community is full of great restaurants and fun atmospheres. The school is highly ranked and the faculty are well prepared to foster the best learning environments. I am glad I ended up picking WashU!
10. Diversity: Students are very accepting, but there's still not a lot of diversity at Wash U. Specifically, there's not nearly enough latino representation. There is also isolation between students, especially international students. Then again, that's probably because they feel more comfortable interacting with students from their same country.
11. Diversity: WUSTL is very liberal, and there are a lot of international students. there are not, however, many latino/latina students, and there is a very affluent student body.
12. Administration: The school is very lenient on alcohol use and allows students to make their own choices provided they're being safe and not negatively affecting others. Weed is prevalent as well but is treated much differently by the administration and being caught with it is considered a serious offense. Other drugs can be found easily as well by those looking but are obviously not tolerated by the administration.
13. Administration: The administration and so all in authority treat all students as responsible adults. That means we can drink even when we're underaged as long as we're responsible. The administration in that regard is very lenient - until you overstep your limits and are irresponsible or break an honor code in which case the school will crack down. This policy seems to work well on campus and keeps the students safe.
14. Athletics: The overall student body is relatively athletic, in that the gym facilities are consistently busy. However, most students do not pay attention to varsity sports. Our sports are D3, and although in some cases we are quite good in our division (such as the male and female basketball teams), there is not a strong fan base for any of the school's sports.
15. Guys & Girls: With 7,000 undergrads you're going to see a lot of diversity in looks, interests, social life, and relationships. Many students date, but there is also an active hookup culture. It is fairly easy to balance a social life with your school work. Students dress the way they want to - some in sweats and some in jeans and a blouse. I think Wash U has it's fair share of attractive students just like any other large university would.
16. Guys & Girls: Guys and girls here are great. You know everyone is here for the same reasons and is willing to work hard for what they want and value their education, but at the same time they know how to have a good time and relax. As far as relationships, it is very much a hook-up based culture, with not as many serious, exclusive relationships.
17.Campus Food: The campus food is delicious; there is a lot of variety. BD serves good food, but some special places include the Law Cafe and Holmes Lounge. I'm also a fan of Stanley's, in the basement of Lopata Hall.
校园饮食：校园里的食物都很美味。而且食物种类多样。BD那里提供的食物质量很好，一些特殊地方包括法律咖啡厅和福尔摩斯休息室。我个人也非常钟爱斯坦利那里，在 Lopata 大厅的地下室那块儿。
18. Campus Food: Our campus dining is fantastic! We can get food on some places on campus up to 1am most nights, they have excellent dining staff who always talk to us and are really nice, the meals are really tasty and are usually pretty healthy, depending on what you get. BD and the Village House are the best places to get good food--the Village has the best brunch options on the weekends, both are open late, and both have the best staff. You can find just about everything on campus, and if it's not there, then its nearby and takes Bear Bucks.
19. Campus Housing: The dorms here are wonderful; they are spacious, with nice carpeting and temper-pedic mattresses. They are very clean. Most dorms have personal bathrooms shared among 4-6 others, and the school provides cleaning staff to clean the showers, sink, and bathroom stall. The dorms are pretty expensive, but they are luxurious compared to many other universities.
20. Campus Housing: The dorms are a bit expensive, but it i well worth every penny. From the tempurpedic mattresses to the maids that clean your bathrooms once a week, it is almost like living in a hotel filled with your closest friends.
21. Health & Safety: I personally feel very safe on campus. WUPD has a strong campus presence, especially at night, and all students know which numbers to call or where to go in the event that they do not feel safe for whatever reason. There are blue emergency buttons all over campus for students to press for help in case of an emergency. Outsiders do not have access to any of the dorms or rooms without a Wash U ID and a separate, specific room key. I have heard very little of campus crime, if anything people will take what they find and post it on a Facebook group for their rightful owners to hopefully claim. Overall a very safe and secure community.
22. Transportation: There is a campus bus that circulates around campus on a daily schedule. It's location and pick up times are tracked on the free campus app so it is very easy to use. The school works with public transportation to provide free bus and metro passes to all students on a semester basis so it is free to get around the city as well. As a student, you can also register for free with Enterprise CarShare which allows students to rent a vehicle for a number of hours at a rate of $5 per hour if they need a personal vehicle to get somewhere (if it is to a community service project, the community service office will pay the rental fee).
22. Transportation: There are two metro stops right on campus and since St. Louis is set up in an east-west line you can get essentially anywhere via metro. On top of that there's a carshare service on campus - $5 an hour to rent an enterprise car, located at every lot on campus. There's also a bus that shuttles around campus, circling around every 20 minutes.
23. Local Area: The loop and clayton areas have so much to do and are pretty upscale. Forest park, which is right next to the school and is actually larger than central park is perfect for running and outdoor activities.
24. Local Area: St. Louis has a lot of stuff going on and there is always public transportation to take you to local activities. Also, the happenings in Forest Park are often free and students can walk to those activities.
