One Giant Leap for Admission Kind

We Admit It!  We think maybe we can make out a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.  And that’s because we have successfully downloaded every freshman Common Application into our system.  That means that every student who has applied for freshman admission (and their parents) should have received an initial email from us stating that we have received your application.  If you applied to W&M and have not received such an email:

  • First: check your spam/junk folders to see if the email landed there
  • Second: check with your parents to see if they received an email (assuming you included their email address in your Common App)
  • Third: DON’T PANIC. If you have not received such an email, contact us as soon as possible so we can investigate what happened and work with you towards a resolution

It’s important to note this DOES NOT mean all applications are complete.  We are still working to match over 1500 applications with their transcripts, test scores and application fees.  Remember, you and your parents will receive a second email when we’ve completed your file.  Or, if we are unable to complete your file, we will email you (the student only) to alert you to what’s missing and how to submit it.

So we still have A LOT of work ahead of us (not only processing applications but of course reading them) but this is a major hurdle cleared.  And hopefully it feels good to you to know that all the cyber magic worked and your application landed just where it was supposed to.  And we promise, it’s in good hands.
