Thank you for not price-is-righting me there and guessing 213, whew.

We're going by "Price is Right" rules? In that case I'd like to change my answer to 1 student.

2 students, Bob.

Good grief guys, someone guessing 1, 2, or 3 is not a tragedy under PIR rules...That's below the reasonable range, so it could be easily thwarted by a guess of 150 or something on the low end of real possibilities (not a formal guess btw).

To be followed by a guess of 151...

Exactly, there's no safe ground if you're playing PIR with dozens of contestants.

I really wonder though how many people are just holding on to wustl and maybe even leading adcomms along in order to try to land giant scholarships late in the game like wustl gave out last year. Six months ago tons of people were talking about applying here solely for the purpose of scholly negotiation.

+1 I think TLS has contributed to alot of students double depositing. Everyone wants to negotiate schollys now.

bigger class means more kids in the Top X%. Of course it also means more kids who aren't in the X%, but you guys are all special snowflakes so you'll be fine :wink:

Con law has way too much power on my career trajectory right now bro.

Write-on is all about who's strong enough to overcome the primal urge to abandon all-things-legal after finals and watch Netflix all day...needless to say i was not strong enough and my submission was a flaming turd.

Anyone who may have went down to WUSTL for the May 29th housing day, I was wondering what your experiences were and how it is run and any other comments you might have. Just want to kind of get an idea of what I should be expecting as I'm registered for the June 19th day. Looking especially at those who toured the CWE region, since that is what I will be doing as well.

Tour is super informal. You are given a list of places and can go visit them. CWE was abnormally expensive in comparison to ULoop with studios running upwards of $700 in older non-renovated buildings. Realistically, going on the actual housing day wasn't especially needed if you are intending on going to live in CWE.

Lots of parents were there. I think I might have been one of the only people that didn't bring them. Only about 15 students showed up.

sup kids I had the largest studio here last year http://www.monticelloapts.net/ and it was pretty cool
it's in the central west end, definitely an older, non-renovated building, but prices are all under $600 for studios

How was your commute to school in terms of length and convenience?

I was working at my office in clayton at the time so I took the metro every day. from the monticello to Wash U, it's about a ten minute or so walk to the metrostop, then a 7-8 minute metro ride! definitely an easy commute
