WashU has by far the best academics, facilities and environment of any college I have visited; I was mesmerized by the colossal architecture at first glance (as many a prospective student who has graced the regal stone passageways). A fair warning to prospective students, however: stay realistic as you are thinking about WashU, because you have to pay LOTS in tuition for the resources available to you here!
