Every year, as the Early Decision deadlines approach, I hear a lot of rumors about this application plan. Students tell me things that a neighbor, older cousin, or friend’s brother’s uncle once said to them about Early Decision, so I want to spend my time in this blog post talking about the facts and myths of Early Decision (ED) directly from me, a WashU Admissions Officer.
Do you have “submit the FAFSA” on your to-do list but you’re not sure where to begin? We hear you! The FAFSA can be overwhelming and appear difficult at first but we are here to help you through it.
Here at WashU, interviews are optional. Some of you may have interviewed with a current student while deciding whether to apply. For applicants who did not interview already, you have the option to take advantage of an alumni interview, if one is offered to you.
Admissions at WashU is excited for summer and visits from our prospective students to campus. As the season changes, so will our visit structure – so read on for more information about Summer 2022!
If you ask any WashU student for a recommendation of restaurants on the Loop, odds are very high they will say Mission Taco.

Let’s break down what a wait list is, why universities use them, and the next steps that you should be taking.
Being a junior has meant many things, but most importantly for me, it meant the opportunity to study abroad.
Since it’s been a while since I’ve written a post on this blog, I figured it would be appropriate to quickly re-introduce myself since a few things have changed since my first post.
Introduction This is not the typical article content I write on. I’ve previously written about the performance piece “For Colored Girls”. If you haven’t gotten the chance to read that article, please go check it out! Now, the film I will be reviewing today is a Netflix original film titled “Don’t Look Up”. “Don’t Look […]
With the end of the semester finally past us and the holidays in full swing, I’d like to take this time to congratulate my peers. Congratulations to everyone for completing yet another semester and making it to winter break. Whether you are a freshman or senior, maintaining a good academic standard in the world today is no easy feat. We have finally made it to winter break.
With my undergrad career finally reaching its final chapter, I’ve been looking back on the past three to four years with a different perspective. Most students go into university prepared for a high stress level and more difficult academics. However, each student’s college experience is different and college is much more than academic stress. I’m starting this mini series called “Stress & University” to reflect on my highest peaks of stress in university. Each part will recount how I dealt with stress and how I learned from it. My goal with releasing these articles not only is to educate those entering university, but as a form of self regulation as well.
Our decision to eliminate demonstrated interest doesn’t change our commitment to understanding your unique circumstances, and shouldn’t change how you approach sharing your story with us in your application. Instead, it supports our commitment to create an equitable and accessible process for all applicants. And it puts you in the driver’s seat, navigating our programming based on your true interests in an effort to get to know us better. As a result, you’re able to craft the strongest application you can in a highly selective environment.
I feel like I’m living in the future even writing this. It feels like it was yesterday that I was applying for colleges aimlessly, worried about what would become of me after high school, and unsure of what the next steps were.
