I'm probably headed to WUSTL in the fall too, although I'm still waiting to hear from six schools.

I went to UG at WUSTL, so if anybody would like housing recommendations, feel free to PM me. The most popular areas are probably the Loop (pretty cheap, especially with roommates, pretty safe area too, is patrolled by WU PD), Central West End (slightly more expensive, can be dangerous), and the area to the north west of campus (the neighborhood doesn't have a name if I recall, but it is around Hanley and Delmar).

Another nice and reasonably priced area (especially with roommates) is Brentwood Forest. It isn't popular among undergraduates, but it is among graduates and young professionals. It is a HUGE managed condo / townhouse community. Singles are expensive (around $600 per month) but two and three bedrooms aren't bad with roommates (around $800 per month), and it is in a safe area. Most utilities are included. It is about a ten minute drive from campus though, but it is a very cool area, and it is pretty close to the metrolink.

I visited the week before admitted students’ day and I was really glad that I went on my own. I had an opportunity to meet with professors, the dean and various students one on one. I had conservations and students were really honest with me as we discussed the pros and cons. I think I got a better feel for the school visiting by myself. It definitely helped me with my decision. Wash U is at the top of my list. I hope your visit goes well!

When do you go UG at WUSTL? I'm a senior now, and would not call the Loop "pretty safe." Maybe something's changed. This past school year, there have been two muggings of students and one girl was assaulted while doing laundry. The only crime alerts have been in the Loop area. Of course, plenty of UGs live there without being attacked but I personally wouldn't live there.

The area surrounding WUSTL is very cool, in my opinion. Forest Park and the surrounding neighborhoods offer seem cool amenities, bars, restaurants, etc. Downtown is kinda hit or miss, but I'm a big fan of it since I'm a Cardinals fan (the new Busch Stadium is awesome).

PS. Please don't sue me.

That's right where i lived for WUSTL undergrad. near the outdoor pool.

By the way, checking in. I didn't know this thread existed. Put my deposit down. 38k/yr scholly so I may be WUSTL bound again. Didn't go to an ASW, but my 5 year reunion is coming up, so I'll just check out the law school then (even though I'm pretty familiar w/ the campus).

Chance of attendance upgraded to 99.9%. Vandy negotiation was summarily smacked down, so it looks like I'm rooting for [strike]WashU[/strike] us to buy [strike]their[/strike] our way to the top. Class of 2013 Here I come! :mrgreen:

Nope. About 1/3 of WashU's offer. I enjoyed my 4 years at Vandy, but not that much. My tech background may mitigate the employment differences anyway, so $57k plus interest just isn't worth it.

I'm at work, and I literally LOLed at that comment, causing my coworkers to wonder what I'm laughing at.

Seat deposit sent, I'm in... I can't imagine one of the schools I'm still waiting to hear from beating WUSTL's offer...

I'd love to join the Facebook group, but I don't want my coworkers knowing about law school until August... plus I hear the group doesn't have a lot of members yet anyway.

Unless I fall in love with Emory next week I will be there in the fall too :) Have people received their travel reimbursements for the Feb ASD yet? Or know how long it should take to receive?
