If they match full tuition, or come up a little from 114k, I will very likely be in St. Louis in the fall. I just have no idea how to go about doing so. Call/email admissions or what?


Just e-mail admissions. I don't think they'll care that Indiana offered you money, but they might budge on the Minnesota factor.

Central West End, Delmar Loop, and Washington Ave. downtown is up and coming and has some pretty cool lofts that rent out for cheap.

To live or to go out?

St. Louis has so many different neighborhoods it's crazy. In reality, St. Louis is like 20 small cities, each with a unique character of its own, rather than 1 big city.

Coug mentioned the top 3 I think. Clayton and Soulard are pretty sweet too though.

I'm still waiting on scholarship info - was accepted 2/3/11.

Are there others accepted around the same time who are still waiting to hear anything about money?

Also...do we have any idea when Webster scholarships will be announced?

I just realized that I forgot to send in the financial aid form. I have it filled out on my desk at work. Will I be okay if I send it in express today?

Do you need to fill out the financial aid form to receive a scholarship offer?

Dear WUSTL, If you don't convince the Cards to pony up for Pujols, I'm not coming.

+1. We should all sign a petition. Maybe the WUSTL would pony up a couple mil a year for his contract.

*Sigh*, and I've been sitting at complete since the very beginning of December. I want a decision, WUSTL!

Also, I don't understand how someone can be 'complete' 1 day and 'in review' the next, and yet i've just been 'complete' for 10 weeks? Is it possible that they just leave people at 'complete' for all of this time even though they're technically in reivew? I don't get it.

I went complete 12/7, just went in review on 2/10. I'm beginning to think there's something to that 168 wall.

perhaps they're one of those schools that holds the average applicant in 'complete' for a long time but then once they move to 'in review' that they render a decision within a week or two?

What's the longest that someone has been 'in review' at WUSTL here?
