<p>2 glowing
counselor rec I assume will be OK.</p>

<p>essays will hopefully be good</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>Impressive stats, I'd say "in", with a good chance at a merit scholarship -- Monroe, at least, and a Murray semi-finalist selection wouldn't be out of the question. Murray is really difficult, but write some really good essays, maybe add a few points to your SAT scores, who knows?</p>

<p>thanks squiddy</p>

<p>Glad you're interested in W&M. You certainly sound like someone who is competitive for admission although any student should keep in mind that W&M admits approx. 30% of its applicants and about 25% of the out-of-state applicants. The classes you've selected, your academic record, your standardized tests and resume appear impressive.</p>
