I'm very interested in Williams College, everything from its strong alumni network, generous financial aid, and interesting Oxford tutorial style courses. I have recently found out about "Windows on Williams", a program for high-achieving students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit Williams. I'm very interested in applying for the Windows on Williams program for the fall of 2020. However, I also have a few questions to ask:
1. For the section on the application that says "Please submit an essay or paper written for an English or social science class during the 2019-2020 school year", does it have to be a creative writing piece, or can I submit a research or novel analysis paper full of quotes?
2. Do students who get accepted into the Windows of Williams program have a higher acceptance rate compared to students who don't even apply for the program (people who have no idea about Windows on Williams)?
3. I have heard that some individuals who unfortunately didn't get accepted into the program still receive a personal email, fee waiver, and chance to talk with admission officers. Do these kids-who didn't get accepted, but still applied to the program-still have a higher chance of getting accepted ED when compared to normal applicants who did not even know about Windows on Williams or did not even apply to it?
I hope that Windows on Williams won't get cancelled or something because of the ongoing Covid-19 situation. I still have not had a chance to visit any college because of the ongoing situation, and don't even know if I will be able to in the near future. I am really looking forward to submitting my application, as I am really passionate about applying to Williams College.
