They project the typical private college image of prestigeMay 13 2015Undecided
They project the typical private college image of prestige and rigorous admissions but in the end if you have a decent high school transcript and the means to pay then they will let you in.

ACT: 25 Male
Nothing, I did nothing to get inJan 21 2015Unknown
Nothing, I did nothing to get in. They let practically anyone in because their student body is fading away, it's at an all time low, my high school was bigger, and honestly more fun . The school won't be around much longer, they're close to bankruptcy.
SAT: 1850 Male
W&J has higher standards than most colleges, but they'reMay 25 2012English
W&J has higher standards than most colleges, but they're not insanely picky. Have decent SAT scores, join lots of clubs, and write a good cover letter.
GO GO GO for an interviewOct 10 2011English
GO GO GO for an interview. W&J cares very little about SAT scores and grades compared to knowing their future students personally. Email professors who are in your field, schedule a campus visit-- do ALL of these things so the college knows your name.
