We Admit It! Like you, all of us in the Admission Office are ready for winter break. As of this evening (December 23), William & Mary and the Office of Undergraduate Admission will be closed for the holidays. We will reopen on January 4.
We realize that the next eight days are some of the busiest of the application season. In fact, between now and our January 1 Regular Decision deadline, we will receive the vast majority of our 14,000+ applications. As such, we will continue to download and process applications over the break, and will email applicants and their parents accordingly. Please note that during these busier times it can take longer than normal for us to download your application from Common App and can take up to a month for us to match it with your application materials. Be patient and check your inbox—we will be in touch as we process your application.
Should you have any last-minute questions, we will be checking our firstname.lastname@example.org daily throughout the break. While we will not be able to confirm receipt of specific materials, we will be happy to address any questions or concerns you have about applying to W&M. We will also monitor this blog for questions during the office closure.
We wish you all a very happy holiday season, and look forward to reading all of your applications in the new year.
Assistant Dean of Admission
