<p>Thanks You Guys be honest but not mean-I already know my chances are slim I also want to know if ED would Help</p>

<p>Applying ED, if you are certain that, finances allowing you'd be happy to go there, is always a sound option in increasing your odds of admission. Even though said pool tends to be especially competitive, it is perhaps the most significant demonstration of interest that exists, which is something that will be kept in mind even if you're deferred...at which point you'd no longer be obliged to attend if admitted. </p>

<p>Of course, if you're not entirely certain about it being your first choice, or something you can settle for over your first choice, don't bother applying ED.</p>


<p>I dare you to chance me...</p>

<p>If you can get a 32 on the ACT, and if that 4.0 GPA means you've gotten straight As in a rigorous curriculum, with your other factors I would say that you have a 60% percent shot at ED and a 40-50% shot RD.</p>

<p>Yes, you have a chance of getting in. How much of a chance? None of us can really tell you that. I can tell you, though, that my son got in ED with a 31 ACT and less than a 4.0 GPA. Good luck!</p>

<p>blackeyed thanks for the response! did your son also have great EC's i consider myself on the low side</p>

<p>My son had good ECs -- I don't know what you consider great. Editor in Chief of Yearbook, varsity athlete, regional and national photography awards.</p>

<p>Be careful to demonstrate your interest in Wash U, as it has been known to be afflicted with "Tufts Syndrome" in the past.</p>

<p>^ WUSTL admissions may be unpredictable, but if you look through the past few years of decision threads, you'll find that some students showed a great deal of interest and weren't accepted while others showed no interest and were. Interest will never hurt, though.</p>

<p>So do u think its good that im not an extremely competitive student?</p>

<p>you're decently competitive but not extremely competitive unfortunately</p>

<p>Are you planning on scheduling an interview?</p>

<p>Yah if you refer to the above comment i noted that im not extremely competitive but i heards for WUSL its better because they might reject those kids bc they are less likely to attend...I will schedule an interview if it will help?</p>

<p>I think that if you are comfortable around new people, and can easily carry on a meaningful conversation, it will definitely help you to further convey your interest in the school. I don't see how it could hurt you, if you are well-prepared, and you are truly enthusiastic about the school. :)</p>

<p>"tufts syndrome" where they reject kids that are too good happens at every school, believe it or not. it's just not noticed at top schools because everyone just says "well, that place is already prestigious and tough to get in" but when it comes to WashU and everyone's opinion seems to be that it's nowhere near as prestigious as other schools, when a top applicant is rejected, it's the end of the damn world. sorry, i'm just venting.</p>

<p>its true.WUSL is an amazing school..its not a Yale but im convinced it's better :D</p>

<p>i have to say i would have chosen WashU over Yale, and they were my top 2 schools. Thankfully I got into WashU ED, and i think you have a very good shot if you go ED, but a split between Acceptance/Waitlist if you go RD. good luck.</p>


<p>there have been several people who have chosen WUSTL over yale, and honestly, both schools will provide a fun, incredible undergrad experience.</p>

<p>Yeah, I totally agree with nooob. I mean, WashU has never stated on their website that people with >3.9 GPA and >2300 SAT score would definitely get in. Those who had such scores and got rejected were just bitter and I'm glad that WashU rejected them. Cos it showed that they're still not mature enough for college. -_-</p>
