Did they go to Exeter?

WUSTL also asks for high school attended and class rank...which is good for me, b/c I went to a very prestigious HS in St. Louis (and yes, it actually would matter a little bit to the Admissions Committee for WUSTL, believe it or not).

lol at thinking high school has anything to do with an admissions decision (and particularly an admissions decision at WUSTL). I'm a native St. Louisan, and I can't imagine any of the high schools around here holding any influence in the process. LSN seems to back me up on this; get that score at or above the median or your fantastic high school education will have been for naught.


I believe you're wrong, my friend. At any other law school (aside from SLU), no, the high school you attended definitely wouldn't matter. For a SLUH graduate, yes, it would definitely be a very small factor for the Adcoms at WUSTL and SLU...more so at SLU.

And where are you getting this info? I have never heard of HS having any impact whatsoever on an admissions decision, and I'd love to know what makes you so certain that it will.

Also, WUSTL doesn't ask for HS class rank. And neither do W&M and ND (though I can't verify GW).

LOOOVE my high school. I went to a specialized high school in NY so it has a pretty strong network. I gotta get working on that, lol.

Yale leaves a blank for Secondary School rank (if known).
