We Admit It! We are so psyched to welcome all of you to the Tribe and the Class of 2019. You are so incredibly smart and talented and accomplished. You were selected from nearly 15,000 applications; you are, without a doubt, the best of the best. Yes, “Good Things” means what you think it means. Congratulations! You’re in.
So now the really hard work: you have to decide where to spend the next four years. Sure we’re biased but we think William & Mary should be that place. In the coming days your formal admission packet should arrive in the mail. That packet will contain more information about W&M as well as an invitation to our Day for Admitted Students on April 11. The entire campus is excited to welcome you to Williamsburg and to show you what W&M has to offer. We encourage you to attend if you’re able; it’s our absolute favorite day of the year. If you can’t make it to campus on the 11th, consider a myWM Monday visit. These programs are a great way to explore campus and help you to make an enrollment decision.
We also encourage you to explore the Welcome website (linked in your decision email), the #wm2019 tagboard (come on, let’s make #wm2019 trending) the @thecrimtell Twitter feed run by our Admission Ambassadors and the Class of 2019 Facebook group (linked on the Welcome website). All of these are designed to welcome you to campus and to help you learn more about what we hope is your future alma mater.
But right now, pat yourself on the back, get a high five (or give yourself one), do a victory dance, breathe a sigh of relief. You’ve earned it. And better yet, capture it and post it using the hashtag #wm2019. We are shouting and tweeting from the rooftops and we hope you will too. Tribe Pride is a powerful thing and today that pride is in you. We think you will add so much to our campus, and we are eager for you to explore what W&M has to offer.
