I just recieved a letter in the mail from Washington University in St.Louis telling me that they want to send me their "College Preparation Checklist". And of course they had to add some self-advertising by saying that "when the time does come for you to select a college, I hope that Washington University in St.Louis is on the list." Anyways, I don't know much about colleges except for the prestigious ones like Harvard, Stanford, Yale, M.I.T, Duke, Emory, etc. and the local ones. So can anyone tell me what type of college Washington University in St.Louis is and if it is a good one? I'm just curious since they sent me a letter. Thanks!
