Who is accepted and is not planning to attend?

<p>If the numbers quoted in this board are correct, the school expects about one in three/four kids to accept enrollment. I wonder if it is about the same here...</p>

<p>If you are not planning to attend Wash U., why? Did you enroll at Wash U. because it was a safety school?</p>

<p>maybe some next level person who got into an ivy league school</p>

<p>actually i dont think ivies are that superior to wustl.
they do have better reputation,but wustl really focuses on the undergraduates</p>

<p>Ivy this, Ivy that. This board puts a ridiculous emphasis on the Ivies...</p>

<p>I'm going to UNC Chapel Hill. I got into WashU, and will be part of the 70% of people accepted that go somewhere else. I don't think WashU is a "safety school" for anyone, though.</p>

<p>I'm still waiting on a decision from UPenn. I don't really know why I applied, I wouldn't attend if it offered full merit scholarships! Actually, I applied so I can tell all the Ivy freaks that I'm attending a public state school over an Ivy league school. Yes, there are plenty of others like me, too!</p>

<p>I've been admitted, but I'm not planning on attending. I did not apply to WashU as a safety; there was about a week during my college application craze where I decided that I loved WashU and that I could see myself going there. Unfortunately, that changed. haha....</p>

<p>I love WashU. Still do. </p>

<p>It's too expensive to go though. I'm most likely going to Purdue. Boilerup!</p>

<p>yay...another spot open...</p>

<p>I like WUStL when I applied, but after a little while I realized other schools were just better fits for me.</p>

<p>I didn't think it was a safety.</p>

<p>Decisions are not out for all colleges. People will see a clearer picture of where they end up when they know what choices they have.</p>

<p>I don't think I will. I'm going to MIT! :-) (if only they had given me a full ride...perhaps things would have been different)</p>

<p>I'm hearing from my first choice school this week - if I don't get in there it's kind of a free-for-all amongst my other schools. Though really, unless I visited and absolutely fell head over heels in love with the place, I'd probably choose somewhere less expensive.</p>

<p>Who DOES consider WashU a safety?</p>

<p>my friend got into WUSTL [i only got waitlisted] and he isn't attending. but, he got a likely letter from dartmouth, got into UCB, UCLA, and USC already, and is waiting to hear from the rest of the ivies [he applied to all except 2]. he got rejected by Stanford SCEA, but the likely from dartmouth leads me to believe he has some good decisions coming, which will definitely eliminate WUSTL from the picture</p>

<p>no scholarships, so I will likely not attend</p>

<p>this does not apply for me, but I can understand some people (shooting for HYPS) who would consider Wash U a safety</p>

<p>I probably won't attend, though I have to get the rest of my decisions to be sure.</p>

<p>You Should Attend U Selfish People!!!! Wash U Is A Great School!! Be Thankful They Even Let You In!!!</p>

<p>I don't think WUSTL can be considered a safety, since it has the same level of difficulty to get into as the Ivies.</p>

<p>It's highly unlikely that our s will matriculate to WashU. Honored to be accepted but will probably choose another college.</p>

<p>Anyone who relies on WashU as a safety is foolish. At a safety, you must be "sure that you'll get in" Anyway I'm thinking of attending WashU but I have to see about Columbia and such first.</p>

<p>i would consider washu if i dont get into the some of the other schools that i applied to.</p>

<p>I dunno if I'd consider Wash U a safety, but there are a couple of colleges that I applied to that, if I get into any of them, would supersede Wash U. I mean, I guess that's sort of a safety, but it's not like I applied there in case I didn't get in anywhere else.</p>
