I'm pleased with my Common App essay and I haven't read them but I'm confident my LORs are good.
I haven't visited Williams, but I did apply to their Windows on Williams program. Got rejected, but did get offered a fee waiver and the opportunity to participate in their WoW phone call program with an admissions officer, which they told me would double my chances of admission.
Obviously Williams is a crazy hard school to get into and somewhat of a crapshoot for anyone, but I'm just wondering if anyone could give me some insights. Thanks!
