    For some reason, this is the first thread title to truly terrify me.
  • holsen1432holsen1432 Posts: 63Registered User Junior Member
    Have you submitted your app yet?
  • RyanMKRyanMK Posts: 788Registered User Member
    Haha, RaVNzCRoFT is a senior at WashU. So, yes. He has :P
  • RaVNzCRoFTRaVNzCRoFT Posts: 980Registered User Member
    Hahaha, yep. It's just that the thread title makes me feel old.
  • holsen1432holsen1432 Posts: 63Registered User Junior Member

    Nice! Do you guys know how to
    Set up an interview with an alumni? I don't know if I can make it out to St. Louis for another visit.

    Hender- WUSTL has a program called APAP- they have local contacts that will contact students after you submit your app and pay the application fee (this is a new change this year)

    Here is their contact info

    Washington University in St. Louis
    Alumni and Parents Admission Program
    Campus Box 1028
    One Brookings Drive
    St. Louis, MO 63130
    (314) or (800) 935-4826

    ^Just for reference, the "new change this year" that PsychoDad is referring to is that in the past, anyone who had submitted the supplemental form could request an interview.

    In order to curb the high number of students interviewing (but not actually applying in the end), you now need the common app in (& the fee or waiver) before you can interview.

    Out of the blue, my D was contacted by Wash U for an interview. Also, at the information session, they said they will contact you if you apply early. They said there are limited interviewers. It sounds like you cannot request an interview. Instead they will call you if they are interested. I think it is a great way for them to learn who you are. They told my D they wanted to put a face with the application. Smart!
  • Johnson181Johnson181 Posts: 4,203Registered User Senior Member
    ruby- that is partially incorrect.

    While some students are randomly contacted, you can indeed request one by calling in or emailing the APAP email.

    From some FAQ page on admissions:

    "If you are interested in an alumni interview, please contact APAP by phone at (800) 935-4826 (toll-free) or (314) 935-4826, or by email at apap@wustl.edu. "

    WashU is seriously the only school I've been thinking about and I'm applying ED too.. Kinda nervous :/
