William and Mary's Waitlist?

nikki9nikki9 Registered User Posts: 26 New Member
Has anyone been accepted off of W&M's waitlist yet? Especially instate applicants?

I'm also curious about when/how they contact a student if he/she has been accepted off of a waiting list. Do they call? If so, when (during the day, I mean). Or do they send emails etc.?

Thanks!

    D spoke with the Director of Admissions this morning. The wait list is definitely active--possibly as many as 30+ students will be admitted off the list this year.

    I'm an instate- applicant and currently on the WL, haven't recieved any news yet. Anyone in Arlington VA or somewhere fairly close recieved news of their status?

    I just got in an hour ago after getting a call from them! Have hope out there, I never thought I could get in but after sending in a couple of letters explaining my desire to attend I think they realized how much I wanted to go to w&m. By the way, I never visited to school officially, so I guess that doesn't count against you too much if you live far away.

    I'm also OOS from washington

    congrats to all of those getting in :)

    I keep wondering why I haven't heard of any instate students getting accepted off of the list? I'm instate and I'm definitely getting really anxious-I'd love to go to WM

    i agree with you completely, my dad's an alum there and got a few friends going there, and would love to join them. But also, i too haven't heard from any In-state getting off the waitlist, perhaps? they were only sending the OOS waitlist first? and then will offer admission to the IS students, or perhaps? they already have the 2/3 of IS students for the 2012 class, i hope its not the later of the two

    I have heard of some IS students who were waitlisted at WM getting off a week or two ago. Hope this helps.

    a while back when i was first put on the waitlist they told me they round out the class with the students from the waitlist. say a bunch of people decline them from new york then they replace them with other people from new york. i think it all just boils down to geographic diversity.

    D and I toured the campus this morning. D met w/ the admissions director, D was told that all admissions for the class of 2012 would be completed by June 15th.

    did anyone who was admitted hear anything about financial aid? really in a pickle about what to do....i was accepted off of the waitlist today but the lady I talked to said something about there not being much financial aid remaining...i'm going to try to get some better information and make a good decision but anyone's input in the meantime would be greatly appreciated
