Hope y’all are doing well.
I am an international student who applied to Williams ED last year but was unfortunately rejected. Although I was later accepted to other few colleges, I will be taking a gap year due to some family problems. This is why I’ve thought of reapplying to Williams ED this year as well. Regarding the changes in my application, I’ll have two new ECs (both of which are pretty important to me), a new common app essay (“better than the one I previously submitted” according to my friends and teachers), and increased EFC of $50k. Will I have slightly less chance of being accepted because I was rejected previously or will my application be assessed independently of the previous decision.
Your help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much!
