    The numbers are low but the ECs and classes seem strong. What are the individual SATs because W&M doesn't really look at writing (last I checked) and that may have a big impact. I'd say it could go either way.

    she had a 700 CR, 680M, and 600W.

    Looks like your friend is certainly someone William & Mary would consider. The selective nature of W&M means that not every great applicant is admitted but certainly your friend has good SATs, classes, and extracurricular involvements. It's in her best interests (especially if she's doing well) to send her first semester grades when they become available.
