Campus looks gorgeous. Have any of you guys been to St. Louis yet? :D


I've been to St. Louis a couple of times, it's a very underrated city IMO. Still haven't checked out campus, might have to swing down there soon.

Decided to check in and throw an app their way. LST Reports shows their employment score continually improving year after year, and with all the money they throw at the big numbers, I'm starting to think WUSTL is on it's way to UT/Georgetown level soon.

App complete, just waiting for a fee waiver to send it out.

Not sure if this has been covered. If you fill out the http://apply.law.wustl.edu/ they will email a fee waiver code.

Nope. But I met with one of the Deans at a Forum and did one of the early skype interviews. Also being over both 75ths probably helped a bit lol. WUSTL is very numbers driven.

Congrats back to you! Funny thing is I got the admittance letter in the mail and got the scholly emails right after I opened the letter.

How seriously are you considering WUSTL? I'd of course prefer the T13 but a basically free JD to a T20 is very appealing.

I am actually from that area. While STL isn’t home, it would be a serious move back towards home after a few years in a major metropolitan area. For those reasons, and the part of me that wants to settle down in the Midwest, WUSTL is a serious contender.

From their app instructions:

"Washington University welcomes applications from international students. Admitted international students are required to provide financial records documenting that funds are available to pay for the full cost of law school attendance and living expenses in order to receive student visas. Washington University School of Law does not provide tuition waivers or graduate teaching assistantships."

Does it mean that I'm not eligible for any scholarship? :cry:
