What impressed you positively?

"The students I met at the pizza night were all very nice. Whoever did the match for the Olin Buddies did a good job matching me and my buddy. I was pleasantly surprised at how down to earth all the students seemed to be considering how highly Wash U is regarded as a research oriented university." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Olin Hall (the place where they house us) was rather plain. The entertainment rooms were great, but our personal rooms, which are identical to the rooms students stay in, were small and uninspiring. Perhaps I expected too much, but it seems like Wash U spends so much money on new facilities that I expected the residences to be as nice. However, the location was convenient, so I would recommend anyone interviewing to stay there." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you stay in Olin Hall, you can borrow a iron and ironing board. Also, I read this in someone else's post, so I'll post it here again. You can walk around without ever stepping foot outside, so you don't need a heavy coat during your interview day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was wonderful. The questions were so seamlessly interwoven into the conversation that it felt very natural. I feel like because it was so conversational, I didn't get to talk about some things that I've talked about elsewhere, but otherwise, I left feeling good." Report Response
