That's exactly the issue, though. WUSTL has been doing this type of thing since before the downtown, and it seems like they are ahead of the curve. Dean Spivey even said something to the tune of, "While other schools rested on their name and reputation to land jobs, we were out making new inroads.... yadda yadda." This isn't so much a reaction to the times as it is a committment on the part of the school to offer more diverse opportunities.

I'm not trying to be the mouthpiece of WUSTL or say that it is T14 material. It just seems like they are ahead of the curve compared to a lot of other schools, and I think they are doing remarkably well compared to their peer schools.

Haha obviously. I think I'm gonna get a shirt with the "Top Gun" logo and wear it to class on the first day of class.

That is how it is working at the ~15-30 range right now, and it is smart- it is (and has been in the past) getting them jobs while higher ranked schools aren't necessarily doing so. But I've been to 4 ASDs, and 3 of them (in the 15-30 range) said that exact thing, and the other one (high T14) said they still had great name rec. and had started to strengthen actual ties. The girl at the T6 said their CS was scrambling to do so... probably helps to still have that name rec. though. More so if everyone is moving towards that.

ah ok...thanks. it's good to know that these schools aren't leaving their students high and dry. also, just because more than 1 school is putting more of an emphasis on small-mid sized firms doesn't mean that the approach is bad or that it won't work for the student's of a particular school (i'm guessing that there are plenty of those kind of jobs to go around or at least a lot more than that which is available with large firms.) i would also bet that as one goes down the usnews rankings (not that the rankings strictly matter) the less likely schools are adapting well to the change in job climate.

Exactly najumobi. I'm not trying to put WUSTL down, I personally think it is a great approach. I'm just noting that they aren't exactly unique or groundbreaking in said approach.

Ohhh gurl, these topics are double B Boringgggg ... lets talk about the real stuff! I've called the admissions office three times. Once to Mary Anne Clifford who didn't pick up. Once to Dean Bolin who didn't pick up and finally one to the main office. She picked up, but not much help. Does anyone have any new news as to whether we may hear today!?! I'm shaking in my houndstooth rainboots!

Paul Wall (sorry to out you), but the more you call them, the less time they have to actually make decisions on applications

I got them from Target of course! LOL ... why do you think we won't hear 2day?!

And as for the calling issue, I disagree with you ... I think you're just scared to call. They're admissions staffers, they have time to answer phones.

Staffers help deans get things done. Time you take away from them trickles down, however indirectly or slowly, to the people making decisions. And I have called once before, regrettably.

I will be sure to send you a photocopy of my wait list so you can eat your words. In the interest of the sanity of others on this thread, I won't be responding to anything else you say.

Stupid question for admitted students...

The seat deposit is due in a couple of days, and I'm most likely going to WUSTL. Can I pay online via credit card on the admitted student site? The last time I looked, it said the credit card feature was coming soon.

Is April 1st a hard deadline for deposits?

I got a full tuition scholarship and they are suddenly looking more attractive than Vandy's 2/3rd scholarship ... but I need some time to decide.

You have to have the deposit in by April 1, but if you decide not to go there by May 1, they'll refund it to you. So you'll still have some time to decide on Vandy.

FWIW, I'd deff. choose WUSTL full tuition over Vandy partial tuition... unless you were wanting to go down South to work.
