Decisions, Decisions: Admit Edition – Welcome Class of 2024!

We Admit It! After months of reading applications, committee meetings, and decision making, we can finally share the good news: Welcome to the Tribe! That’s right, you’ve been accepted to William & Mary as a part of the Class of 2024!

Feel free to do a little dance, shout it from the rooftops, sing that special song, and put on that green and gold. Because you have earned it. Out of almost 15,000 applicants, all of whom were fantastic and talented individuals, we chose you. In short, you were the best of the best.

We use the term “earned” above because this accomplishment was exactly that: earned. You have spent countless hours challenging yourself in and out of the classroom in order to put yourself in this position. All of your hard work has earned you this admission offer, and we can’t wait to see what you’ll accomplish as a member of the Tribe.

We know that you might still have a final decision to make, and that’s okay! As your admission counselors, we want you to make the best decision possible for you and your family. That being said, we are a little biased, and we hope that you will be joining us in the fall. Usually, we would love to invite you all to campus to experience what William & Mary has to offer first hand. However, in order to keep our current and future members of our community happy and healthy, William & Mary is monitoring the spread of COVID-19.

Due to this, please keep an eye on your inbox for updates regarding our Digital Days For Admitted Students. That being said, we have the exciting opportunity to provide online programming to help you engage with our community, and hopefully help you make your final decision about calling William & Mary “home” for the next four years!

We encourage you to explore the Welcome site (linked in your decision email) and join the Class of 2024 Facebook group. All these are great ways to learn about our university, and to get you excited about making Williamsburg your home.

Take some time off to celebrate with your family and friends. Get that William & Mary sweatshirt you have been dying to get for months. Post on social media with #wm2024 (we’ve even created a few stickers and GIFs to help you share the news). It’s been a long journey, but you have made it. You can now bask at the light at the end of the tunnel. We will be celebrating with you, every step of the way.

We’ve been waiting a long time to say this: Welcome to the Tribe!
