Jesus WUSTL is really stepping it up with the PR this year...phone interviews...handwritten notes on acceptance letters...animated holiday cards with music. It's definitely working as far as I'm concerned

Oh no. You have gotten a call from an unknown St Louis number. But it's Tyrone. And he's pissed.

Yes, she also mentioned it as a possibility for me. But I'm not sure how to proceed. Either way I think I am going to wait for to packet to arrive before I decide anything. I would really like to see St Louis though.



Just so everyone isn't as bewildered as I was last year, apparently their subway/light rail system runs on the honor system. There are no turnstiles or anything to check whether you paid for your fare or not. You're just supposed to pay at one of the machines and hop on. Apparently people in the Midwest are much more honest than us jerks on in the Northeast...

I remember buying my ticket and just looking around to see where I was supposed to insert it..so confused lol

(Evidently there are workers on the trains that walk around periodically to check if you have a ticket, but I rode that thing for 3 days straight during my visit and i never saw anyone check)


As a STL native, I thought I'd chime in on the Metrolink. The best words I can think of to describe it is, "It blows!" The Metrolink in St. Louis is not a common form of transportation like rail systems in Chicago, NYC, and DC. Because of this, it's not exactly the best form of transportation, nor is it the most convenient. If you plan on moving to STL to go to WashU, I wouldn't count on this as a way to get around every day. It's good to use to get to Cards games or maybe to go to the airport.

I never felt safe riding it alone. I tried when I was going to school downtown, and I lasted a week. And...I went to school in Chicago, and rode the El all the time with no issues. Annoying teenagers like to ride in groups, and annoying thugs like to ride in groups and try to intimidate people. Also, be prepared to protect your face from the d-bags who like to play the "knockout-game." These gangs of men will just walk up to a person and punch them in the face.

When it comes to the Metrolink, just say no...most of the time.

I'll rebut moving from the East Coast. I like it. I have a car, but I don't use it. I use the Metrolink everyday coming from the CWE. Is it faster to drive a car? Much, but don't have to deal with traffic or idiots on Lindell. I use it all the time to go downtown too, either for games or bars. Sure, it's not expansive, but there's really not much to do in St. Louis, and if I want to go somewhere, I'll just take my car anyway.

But you get a free metrolink pass, and a parking pass is like $500 for the year. So I see it as win-win. Save $500, AND not have to pay for parking downtown. Plus can get hammered in Delmar or Downtown, and not worry about cab rides home or having to sober up to drive.

Is it dodgy? Maybe. As a bigger guy, I have never felt a bit unsafe, even taking some of the midnight trains alone. But I've lived in some dodgy areas of cities, so maybe I am just used to it.

I'll say give it a chance, but if you plan on doing other things in the city, going to need a car.

Plus I like slipping on my headphones and just having some time to myself. Sure I can listen to the car radio for 10 minutes, but not the same as walking and zoning out to whatever I'm listening to.

All Wash U students get a free pass to use all public transportation in St. Louis, including the Metrolink.

I just got my acceptance packet in the mail!!!! I'm having my best people (my brother and my mom) working on figuring out if it's hand-signed or scanned.

Something interesting in the letter: They said I'm being considered for one of their Scholar in Law awards. Did anyone (everyone?) else get something like this in their letter? I'd be pretty psyched to get some money.

All admitted students are considered for that, whether or not they mention it in the letter. Scholar in Law is just their name for the normal merit scholarships that law schools give out. But congratulations!

Also got the stipend. But plane tickets (from CA) are ~400 and the stipend limit is $200. So I'm still waiting for some things before I jump on those tickets.
