UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS at WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY in ST. LOUIS

You are more than the sum of your parts.

It’s cliched, but it’s true: human beings cannot be captured by a single number, a short answer prompt, or an activities list.

And for this reason, application review is my favorite season as an admissions officer. I feel lucky every time I open an application and get the opportunity to share a student’s world, if only for a moment. Our mission is to see you as a whole human being, a part of your communities, and a future WashU Bear.
