      UMSL WASHU Joint Engineering best value for your money. If you are considering going here for engineering your freshman year, do 2 years at community college and look at the JE program

      Overall Rating:

      Nice campus.... interdisciplinary areas.. good support for international students...

      Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

      Overall Rating:

      I was accepted and asked whether I was going to be taking 2 or 3 classes despite explaining that I was a full time employee. Only 3/15 courses were actually offered between 4-6 PM on the same days and this severely limited availability. I decided to apply to another program and was told that my transcripts and documentation had not been received. This was strange as everything was received from that previous program. I decided not to attend based on limited availability and lack of communication. If more courses were offered in the evenings, I would reconsider.

      Overall Rating:

      I will give 1 star rating for this school because the processing for a freshmen student is terrible and luck of communication. We pay $75 dollar for application fee but I didnt receive any letters from them stating the acceptance or not. You should offer better hospitality for a freshmen student.

      Visited my cousin here as he was doing his medical degree... have to admit, there's no question this is one of the best schools in the nation for medicine. I've never seen such updated facilities and technology in place... not to mention the campus is amazingly nice too, with old world architecture that really gives you a feeling of prestige.
