This was inspired by an earlier post I saw comparing Mich Ross to WashU Olin -- it actually inspired me to such extents that I've opted to make a full-blown post discussing why WashU fucking sucks. I have 10 min of free time rn, so here we go.
WashU fucking sucks. Its administration employs shady admissions practices (similar to UChicago but not done nearly as well) by #1 not having need-blind admissions despite having a 10 billion dollar endowment when even schools like Gtown with 2 billion offer that, and #2 by having a lame/college rankings gamey admissions policy of having two early decision rounds to maximize yield of acceptances. The outcome is that WashU has the richest students (highest median/average family income) of any school in the US. It does this because it is a B-tier School in a C-tier location, and has to compensate for its lack of talent / OCR.
Change my view.
