College Visit Report: Wash U.

November 27, 2007 at 8:37 pm Leave a comment

Over Thanksgiving, we took my daughter on a return trip to Washington University in St. Louis to attend the architecture school’s information session, and brought along her cousin & our son to hear the regular info session.

The architecture session was interesting, but by the time we visited the studios, saw the complexity of the models the students were building, and heard that they are often in their studios until 3 a.m., my daughter had concluded that she wasn’t cut out for architecture.  I’m not sure if it was the calculus requirement or – more likely – the late hours, but she’s decided she’s more interested in urban planning or urban studies than in actually designing the individual buildings.

The general info session was just as incredible as the first one we attended, mainly because they had the same environmental engineering professor as one of the 3 speakers.   I was surprised, though, that my son didn’t get more excited about their science and medicine offerings.  Wash U has one of the better med schools in the country.
