What are your general comments?

"WashU is a great school. They obviously have a lot of resources, and their new learning center is amazing. However, the pizza party the night before kind of worried me. The students there were kind of weird, and not very social with the applicants. I was worried about fitting in. The interview day made me feel a lot better about the school though. Everyone I met that day was very nice (and seemed normal!). Also, while it sounds really convenient, I don't think you could pay me to live in Olin Hall. It was the most depressing, institutional feeling dorm I've ever been in. It was fine for the interview day though -- convenience and $$ is a big advantage." Report Response
