"the weather was crappy the day i was there so i did not get to walk around the area too much, but i got mixed reviews from students. some said that it was a great area (one told me it was a great place to raise kids) but others said that they did not feel safe there. i talked to several people who had had cars stolen and a few who had been mugged.

"I thought that Wash U did a great job presenting themselves and making you feel that they were interested in you as an applicant and a potential student. this school has a huge endowment and they seem to use it well. there is construction going on everywhere, and their financial aid packages seem to be really impressive. the students were very happy and enthusiastic. i got mixed reviews on the area (see below), but overall it seemed like an excellent place."
