I was really involved in high school, had a generally above-average ACT & SAT score.

The primary quality the college looks for is a willingness to engage in the rich academic and social life it has to offer. Instead of emphasising your academic and extra-curricular brilliance (your common app would do that for you), your essay should seek to show open-mindedness and engagement. Think of the time you changed your mind on a strongly-held opinion or prejudice because a personal experience; a writer who inspired you; or a personal struggle that made you more empathetic to the needs of others. In short, emphasis not your present brilliance, but your commitment to engage.

Get a high GPA/class rank and SATs. With that and a couple of decent ECs and recommendations, you're practically guaranteed admission.
SAT: 2320 Male

I personally got in based on my test scores and probably somewhat on my GPA. However, my extra curriculars (a few stellar ones rather than a ton of low quality, low time invested ones) helped get me labeled as a Monroe scholar.
In state, just get around a 2000 and a decent GPA with a good extra curricular or two. Out of state get a 2100 and do the same.
If you can get a 2200 then youre basically guaranteed acceptance. if you get a 1800 in state or 1900 out of state, you still can get in if you have good extra curriculars.
ACT: 34 SAT: 1510 Male

You need to work hard to get into this school. An A average and at least a 1400 SAT that could get you into Georgetown or Duke or UNC CH.

The best way to stand out in the applicant pool to W&M is to demonstrate your individuality in the context of a community. The students W&M is looking for have distinctive personalities and work well with others at the same time. Honor and personal integrity are also extremely important to W&M.
