Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

The school really strives to meet and surpass all of its students expectations on all levels. If there is ever any kind of issue, the school will go beyond what is expected to assure that the issue is solved. In addition, every member of the Wash U community is excessively nice, supportive, and motivating to those around them.


Overall Rating

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!
