If I apply, I will be enrolling as a sophomore. By the end of spring semester, I will have 34 credits. My SAT scores are really weak, I would consider them "average". However, my college gpa at the moment is a 3.7.
Also, my high school transcript was pretty strong with a 4.6 weighted gpa. I did this 3 year graduation plan in HS, where I took only academic courses and AP courses as electives. My EC's include being a book keeper at a local library, serving food at art festivals, senior citizen care-taker, being part of a organization called "Project Downtown", that served food to the homeless all during the three years of my high school. I have already applied here before, and I am hoping the second time, I seriously do get accepted, although my SAT scores aren't competitive. This school has everything I want specifically a neuroscience program which I am really interested in with great undergraduate research opportunities.

    FIREBIRD91, if you're currently enrolled a community college, we would encourage you to complete the two-year associates degree program and apply to William & Mary for the Fall of 2011. If you're currently at a four-year college, we would encourage you to ensure that the classes you've taken are a good mix (some math, some science, some English, some social science). Your GPA is looking good so far. We also encourage you to take 15 credits per semester to be competitive as that's an average course load at W&M.

    Keep in mind that if you applied for Fall 2009 you only need complete the re-open application (William & Mary - Reopen Applicants) for Fall 2010. We'd also encourage you to attend a prospective transfer event (William & Mary - Prospective Transfer Days) to learn more about the transfer process.
