WashU

Postby splittermcsplit88 » Wed Jun 24, 2015 8:44 pm

Has anyone been accepted to WashU as a transfer yet? My status checker says: decision made. My impression was that they call accepted students. Should I expect a reject? No e-mail or call.

@scottidsntknow care to expand? Currently pretty disenfranchised with my current school (used to be TTT probably now TTTT), had a decent shot of getting into WashU and would consider it if I got it.

WUSTL typically has a lot of people transfer out.

I would caution anyone taking on sticker debt to go to a non-T14 though if you're thinking that doing so will get you a job through OCI. WUSTL's OCI is 100% prelect and transfers do not do well.

I would say go to Wash U only if there is no alternative AND you plan on transferring out. The school has a terrible reputation and generally attracts anything unethical. There were several cheating scandals this past year and the admin basically looked the other way. Most recently, four students were caught cheating on a con-law take-home final and the admin declined to investigate/charge the students with any wrongdoing.

Basically, if you plan on cheating your way through law school, Wash U is the place to go. If you plan on getting a legitimate legal education, look elsewhere.

Don't transfer unless your school is worse than the rat's nest that is Wash U.

How does a person get caught cheating on a take home final?

But as a supposed section D'er you know the likelihood of the accused actually cheating is real low.

Why would that be especially given what happened first semester?

I don't think anyone can know that. There was hardly any effort to resolve what happened because the admin didn't want the incident to go public. I'll let people arrive at their own conclusions, but the fact is that Wash U has had more than its fair share of scandals this year and the official response has been uniformly to limit transparency.

They didn't investigate because no one filed a complaint and someone has to for them to investigate. At least know what you are talking about if you are going to make declarations like this.

Can y'all not shit up the thread please?


OP: Transfers into WUSTL typically do not do well employment wise. I'm not sure what your scholarship situation is at your current school, but sticker at WUSTL, particularly as a transfer, is crazy. Try for T14. Consider dropping out if you don't manage the improbable during OCI (regardless of whether or where you decide to transfer).

Had an interview today with Mary Ann Clifford...went really well but was not offered admission at the end like a lot of other students...any idea as to how long a decision takes following the interview?
