Essay (27) |
Getting into William and Mary for me was very difficult. I had a 1490 on my SAT's and a 34 on my ACT and that alone did not suffice for entry into a College where most applicants have just as good scores. The essays and supplement requirements are a very useful way to convince the admissions team of your individuality not just a super clever robot, so make good use of it if you don't necessarily have the grades to back yourself up. Needless to say W&M ranks one of the highest Unis in the nation and so they will be looking for those who go the extra mile in sports activites etc.

| Jun 10 2005 | Hard work and not slacking are really important, not only if you want to get in to W&M, but if you want to succeed at W&M. Your grades will not be handed to you. Make sure you get good recommendation letters. The one most powerful item that helped me get in was a letter from my high school soccer coach, who had seen me interact with both upperclassmen and freshmen on the team.
Focused myself on admission from day 1 in 9th grade in terms of planning, course selection and scholastic effort.

I had good scores, good grades, and good recommendations. My credentials were thought to be ivy-type quality. I was out of state, so these are generally the normal qualifications of out of staters. Don't expect scholarship money from W&M.
