We Admit It! You all blow us away. You are smart, talented, accomplished, interesting individuals. Out of the over 14,500 applications, you stood out. We couldn’t be more excited for what awaits the Class of 2018. Yes, “Good Things” means what you think it means. Congratulations! You’re in.
We encourage you to visit the welcome website linked in your “Good Things” email. There you’ll find tons of info about how to visit campus as an admitted student (Day for Admitted Students, April 12, is the bomb if we do say so ourselves), a timeline of what’s to come, all of our Class of 2018 social media outlets and so much more about what we hope is your future alma mater. There’s even a welcome video we made in your honor (and we Admit It!, it brought some of us to tears – in a happy way of course).
In the coming days you’ll receive more information in the mail. Your admission package includes much of the information on the welcome website, but also additional information about tuition and financial aid notifications (those who applied for aid will receive an email notification in the next week or so and will be able to view their package online), enrollment deposit information, an admission letter signed by Dean Broaddus and a little W&M swag just for you.
In the meantime, scream, shout, pat yourself on the back, do a happy dance. You’ve earned it. Oh, and post your reactions on social media using #wm2018. Tribe Pride is a powerful thing. The #wm2018 hashtag is just one example.
Congratulations again from all of us in the Admission Office. We hope to see you on campus in the fall.
