Ditto. I mean, I've already been to Scottrade, but I'm always down to watch more hockey.

we could meet at the entrance of the reading room when the reception ends @ 630. also we could exchange #s over PM and get a group text going if necessary. the loop seems to be in walking distance of the law school and has bars that would have the games (maybe Three Kings? looks cool). ready for some midwestern brews :lol:

Not sure whether I'll be able to make it out for March Madness after, but if you want to find me at the reception tonight, I'll be the balding guy in blue suede shoes.

CITY. MUSEUM.

Seriously. Do it. Don't think twice. City Museum is by far and away the best thing in St. Louis.


+1 City museum is my favorite thing to do. It's like a jungle gym for adults (and kids too..) with indoor caves and endless fun.

Hey has anyone asked for a deposit deadline extension? Is that even a thing? Also how have people worded their negotiations with Washu? Have they been pretty responsive to then?

I've asked for more time but have not heard back. Someone either in this thread or the one for applicants asked for more time and WUSTL responded by saying no, but here's more money.

How long ago did you email them? Just looking for an expected timeline. I'm assuming the lack of immediate response means they're at least considering giving additional money.

To those of you who've been at ASW, can I ask how it was like? I'm still trying to make decision, and since I'm international, making any school visit anywhere is not really feasible. I would appreciate any input on how the school was like!


+ I was the one who posted "I made deadline extension request and heard back no, here is more money," but that turns out to be wrong. Additional automatic scholly bump came at a wrong time lol. I'll write again at the thread again later to clear off the myth once I hear final word from the office.

I have to know this. There are rumors that there's a kid at ASW who went to Columbia for UG and was basically trying to confirm (by "just asking questions") that it would be easy for him to be in the top 5%. Anybody know this kid? Is he as aspie as he sounds?

I can confirm that this occurred, but I cannot speak to the student's mental state. I have encountered similar students at pretty much every ASW that wasn't Vandy, though, so don't be too amazed.

Some kid at the Georgetown ASW asked the person in charge of career services what he would need to do in order to guarantee an academic career and she said, "Go to Yale." It was gorgeous.

What kinds of questions was the Columbia kid asking?

I didn't witness it personally, he was in some other breakout group. Someone else I was talking to informed me of this when we were joking about gunners.

Also, did anyone else who went to the ASP get an email just now asking them if they made it out to the ASP? I got one from Will, who I had a solid twenty minute conversation with at one point. :lol:

Probably questions like "Is it really that hard to be in the top 5%?" combined with totally accidentally dropping that he went to "CLS." FWIW, I know of 4 people in the top 5% (10 people are in the top 5% for my class). One is from Harvard (not a STEM or other rigorous major). The others did not go to a top 30 national university; one of them went to a no-name school in Texas I think. There are plenty of people from top 10 schools not in the top 5% though.

Just made the deposit today but I'm still on the fence! I'm so bummed I was not able to visit, I'm sure that would have helped.

How many on here are set on WashU at this point?
