Washington University St. Louis (Forest park in St. Louis???)?
Washington University is like any college campus. There's security but there is also going to be some crime It isnt in a bad area and Forest Park is wonderful. Washington University is surrounded by homes that run into the millions and private streets. As in any town, if you are going to be wandering around after dark, take normal precautions and dont go walking down dark streets by yourself.
What do you feel....Washington University in St. Louis?
Wash U is a very good school! Students at Wash U are academically talented, enjoy excellent professors and campus, and have a terrific library. The campus also happens to be in a very nice neighborhood.
how much money would it take to get accepted into st. louis university?
You mean, how smart do you have to be?
Colleges don't let you in based on how much money you have. They accept you on how intelligent/diligent you are. In the end you pay them for attempting to make you smarter but you don't pay them to get in.
I just got a letter from Washington University in St. Louis?
No this doesn't guarantee your admittance. Pretty much every high school student gets that letter from Washington University. It is one of the most selective schools in the country in part because it spends a ton of money on recruitment. They send these letters out to pretty much everyone. So, more people apply there and then they end up declining most of them. It is a pretty good school, but go and visit and look at the admission's statistics before you decide to apply.
What are my chances of getting into Washington university in st. louis?
Well most applicants applying there are going to be competitive and most likely more involved.
ACT might be a tad low, most applicants that apply have scores in the high 20's low 30's.
GPA of applicants tend to be 3.6+ which doesn't make you stand out very much.
Also, most people applying are going to have a lot of EC"s so volunteering 200 hours which is good might not be enough compared to others who might of done volunteer work and more on top of that.
It will be tough, being president of 2 clubs shows leadership quality and that is definitely good.
But like i said, mostly every single applicant applying to that university is just like you and even more better.
Cross your fingers. It could be possible, but I'm not sure.
Both my parents are alumni from Washington University St. Louis. Will that help my chances of being accepted?
yes, legacy is helpful. It's not going to ensure that you'll get in, but it will give you a little bit of an edge, esp. if your parents have donated money. It's a really good school so I wish you luck getting in there or wherever you want to go! :)
It really depends on what you intend on majoring in. SLU is a good school academically and there are things to do socially. However, its located in the heart of the city surrounded by some not so great neighborhoods with what we always refer to as a "concrete campus". The buildings are spread out and interspersed with other businesses so it doesn't really have the feel of a typical college campus. If you can specify your major, we could give you more specifics.
Do you think Washington University in St. Louis Is a good Medical School to go to ?
Yes, that's one of the top medical schools in the country. However, to become a plastic surgeon you'll have to do a residency in plastic surgery after medical school, so the med school you go to doesn't matter as much. Also, I'm guessing you're still in high school if you didn't already know that, so keep in mind that you need a 4-year college degree to apply to med school - you can't apply straight out of high school. You can go to Washington U for your undergrad, but it's not required to do so to get into their med program after college.
What is the average ACT/SAT score for Washington University at St. Louis. MO?
this is my opinion, i do not think that the admissions committee places too much importance on one's SAT/ACT score. I am going there this fall as a freshman and i got a mere 1900 on the SAT's. I believe that you should place more emphasis on your grades, essay, extracurriculars, etc. anyway, good luck, a high SAT score would be good.
Will Washington University in St. Louis accept me if my application materials dont get their till Jan 17th?
if wustl is your safety school, you must be very smart. but still that would not guarantee you admission if you applied this late. you might get deferred or worse. you should totally pick another safety school that has a more lenient deadline, maybe Feb. or March, and is not rolling admissions, and which suits your taste (has a good program in your major, location, size, etc...) good luck! i hope you will get into one of your reach schools and won't even have to worry about Wash U.
Maryville University, Mizzou, and UMSL? (St. Louis)?
It all depends on you.
Could you handle a larger school? Could you handle a smaller college? What is your major?
Tour the schools first before deciding. One dorm may draw you in, but the cost may deter you. Plus relax by knowing that you can ALWAYS transfer if you aren't happy.
Personally I enjoy larger colleges. I've been to both smaller and larger, but the larger ones seemed to offer more as far as classes, majors, and opportunities.
I got a letter from Washington University St.Louis and I'm a freshman in high school?
ok so first of all thats awesome your GPA is so high
keep up the good work becuase it really comes in handy your junior and senior year with your SATS and choosing colleges ( thats where i am)
so the fact colleges are sending you stuff right now is a good sign yes but dont get cocky about it and keep working hard in school.
your going to get crap from colleges every single day once your a junior its all so they can get your $$ they dont really care if you go or not until you take your SATS. but good luck! and when your closer to graduation, look into thats college and maybe visit thier school but they are only after oyur money at this point in your high school career.
Georgetown vs Washington University in St Louis, which is better for a biology major?
Academically similar. Rich private schools in urban areas. I've been to both campuses. Georgetown would be more fun for sure. But if you're all about business and getting an MD, pHd, I'd probably go to St. Louis. Less distractions.
How competitive is the pre-med undergraduate program at Washington University in St. Louis?
I don't know about WashU, but at Vanderbilt, all grades in the Biology dept. are curved so that the mean grade is a B. And I also heard that the Bio majors here have the lowest average GPAs in the CAS.
I am traveling to St. Louis by Greyhound bus. What is the best way for me to get to St. Louis University?
As another female, I would take a cab to SLU. The neighborhood of the downtown bus station is not the best and walking north on Tucker you will have to go by one of the city's largest homeless shelters. Also depending on which building you are going to at SLU it can be a long cold walk up Grand Ave from the Metro Station. That particular Metro Station has an elevator and often smells of urine so I would suggest that a cab is a much safer and pleasant experience. It's not a real long cab ride so will not break the bank.
Should the St. Louis University Billikens leave the A-10 for the Missouri Valley?
Don't know what the hell sports team you're referring too..I do know Majerus is one hell of a coach. here's info on the billiken:
The Billiken was a charm doll created by an American art teacher and illustrator, Ms. Florence Pretz of Kansas City, Missouri, who is said to have seen the mysterious figure in a dream. In 1908 she patented the Billiken who was elf-like with pointed ears, a mischievous smile, and a tuft a hair on his pointed head. His arms were short and he was generally sitting with his legs stretched out in front of him.

Why are you lying all over the place?
What neighborhood in St. Louis (near Washington University) is good for kids?
I would rank them in the order of Clayton, Richmond Hgts and U City. They are all nice neighborhoods but U City does have some parts that are a bit sketchy. The cost of living in these areas are the same as my ranking. The higher the rank the more it costs. Depending on how long you are planning on living in St.Louis, check with realtors about housing values. Look into the school districts and how they are rated.

Which is safer? Washington University in St. Louis or University of Washington in Seattle?
Don't worry about the difference. College crimes are exceedingly random, and every school strives very hard to keep its campus safe. There is a Federal registry of campus crimes that every school has to belong to, and a Web search ought to uncover it, but I'm not sure that the numbers are particularly reliable or pertinent: Virginia Tech was and is a perfectly safe campus, except for that one incident.
Note that Harvard, Yale, Columbia, NYU, and Penn are located in inner-city areas, and they're exceedingly good places. Similarly, there are really punk schools located in peaceful little towns.
Does anyone have suggestions about free parking near St. Louis University?
The streets have parking meters which you have to feed from 8 AM to 7 PM. This goes for Grand and Lindell. SLU has pretty much forced you to pay for parking in the garage unless you take the Metro to the Grand stop or may be willing to park down some side street and hike to class which I dont know that I'd recommend late in the evening. Busses run along Lindell and Grand so that's always an option or you could try to carpool with someone. Wish I had better news but most of the colleges have things worked out so you are pretty much obligated to purchase student parking.
What happened to St. Louis University hockey team?
St. Louis U is a division 2 ACHA club team. They are still playing, albeit not very well apparently. They have an 0-6 record to this point.
Do the Washington University in St. Louis under grad letters get sent to everybody?
When you take any College Board exam, e.g. the PSAT or whatever, there's a box you probably checked on your answer sheet before actually taking the test, called "Student Search Service."
Checking this box means that any college can obtain your personal information (e.g. address, email address, etc.) and send you their materials.
So, yes, those Wash. U. in St. Louis letters are sent to just about any high school student. I took the PSAT in 10th grade and started getting letters and invitations from random colleges I'd never heard of. Colleges send those letters out to everybody. Some colleges only send their information out to students who got a certain score on the PSAT/whatever test, but most just send them to everyone who checked that Student Search Service box. For more info, google "college board Student Search Service."
What do you think about Washington University in St Louis?
I have lived in St. Louis all my life and worked for Wash U for a while. It is an excellent school with a strong reputation. It also has a strong international leadership program, so you definitely won't be the only European on campus.
The campus is beautiful. Since it is one of the older schools in St. Louis, it has a very "classical look" to it's builidings. In this country, we would say it has almost a European style. They just built some new housing which looks very nice, but I don't know where you will be staying. They usually have plenty of facilities for living including game rooms, kitchens, etc. I've given you a link to the housing web page. I've also added a link to the campus web cams. So you can take a bit of a look around---just remember the time change---the cams don't show much in the dark!
The main campus is close to University City which has cafes, nightlife and things college age students enjoy. Blueberry Hill is a popular spot for classic rock & roll.
On the other side is Forest Park which is a jewel. If you like to ride a bike or walk, it has great trails. It also has an excellent zoo (free daily) and an amazing art museum (also free). Not to mention the Muny Opera which is an outdoor theater that has musicals and other Broadway shows like Cats, Les Miserable, etc. (There are several hundred seats that are free on a 1st come basis). And don't forget the tennis courts, golf course and boat house where you can ride gondolas or rent a paddle boat--pretty cool.
If you are interested in sports, we have a great baseball team the Cardinals and a professional American football team, the Rams. Soccer (what you call football) is probably on campus.
Gee, there's a lot of great things in St. Lous. While we have a French history, we aren't Paris. We are a nice mid-American city.... what we like to think of as the "real America", not the Hollywood version. And Wash U is a strong part of that. Keep an open mind, we aren't "just like home" but you can have a great experience.
If you have specific questions, feel free to email me.
What is a billiken, the team mascot for St. Louis University?
Ah SLU's basketball team is awesome!
Often called one of the coolest or most unusual campus mascots in the country, the Billiken's history -- and how it became affiliated with Saint Louis University-- remains debatable to this day.
Several details seem to be certain. Everyone agrees that the Billiken is a good-luck figure who represents "things as they ought to be." The designer of the Billiken also seems to be fact. Florence Pretz, a Missouri art teacher and illustrator, patented her "design for an image" of the jovial creature in 1908.
Each story of the Billiken connection with Saint Louis University stems from SLU law student and football coach John Bender and his remarkable likeness to the image of the Billiken.
One story reports that a St. Louis sports writer decided that Bender resembled the Billiken. Later, a cartoonist drew a caricature of the coach in the form of a Billiken and posted it in the window of a drugstore. The football team soon became known as "Bender's Billikens."
However the story is told, Billikens always possess cheery personalities, broad smiles and rotund bellies. They bring luck to Saint Louis University's sports teams and smiles to the faces of SLU fans.
One last point on Billiken luck: To buy a Billiken gives the purchaser luck, but to have one given to you is better luck.
Have you ever heard of St. Louis University or is it pretty unpopular and just a regular school?
SLU is pretty popular, especially in Missouri. I think it is one of the more prestigious schools in the state. Mizzou is pretty good too. You should be excited to go. I heard it was a hard school though. Best of luck!
