On the wait list. Wondering if they have different wait lists for in-state and out-of-state applicants? Does W&M welcome visits from wait-listers? I guess it's unlikely that I hear anything before May 1.
Does being a legacy help? My grandfather and greatgrandfather went there and my uncle was a professor there.
What happened to the PrefRank on Parchment for W&M?
How come on this site you chance higher at this school than at UVA? I was under the impression that it was about similar stats.
How well qualified should an in-state male be to qualify themselves as a contender for early admission to W&M?

I am born in Bulgaria and my first language was Bulgarian, not English (idk if this helps).
I will be applying early and will be having an interview.
Do I have any chances at all?
yes!! for sure you will get in!!
Does anyone know what the acceptance rate is for out of state students?
what is tuition roughly for this school T+R/B for out of state? website says only 22k total?
According to our data, William and Mary charges $29,000 for out-of-state tuition. Room and board is $7,400. So ~$36,400, give or take, when all is said and done. This is excluding scholarships, grants, etc.
yes, i was speaking specifically of W&M. I applied there, looked into it pretty closely. admit stats on this site confirm the M/F application imbalance, and the 2/3 VA requirement is well known. BTW, Great school, make sure you visit, though it is a bit tough to get there.
mine says 100% chance, but i HIGHLY doubt it...`
There are several factors that aren't picked up by the program. OOS and Female work against you at W&M. 2/3's of admits must be from VA, and for some reason, many more women apply than men. admit rate for women is half that of men.
are you speaking in general, or for w&m specifically?
Presumably he's speaking about W&M specifically. Brent and I run this site, so I can tell you unambiguously that we have the capability, in general, to pick on the factors mentioned. (The models don't always successfully pick up on those factors, but they're getting better at it now that we're getting more data.)
100% chance :)
does anyone know if they caluclate you freshmen year of high school grades in your gpa.
it's worth noting that there are schools that don't look at your freshman year grades.
Of course they do, why do you think teachers tell you to take grades so seriously?
And stop with the unworthy crap.
imo, I think being in state would have made a significant difference. These are the types of variables that are pretty tough for James and company to factor in to their algorithms. good luck to you.
Those factors could play a little role but, the simulated chance ignores the fact that I am hugely under qualified for this school. I would even go as far to say that I am unworthy.
With W&M, one big issue is your OOS status,cause by state statute, 2/3 must be in state. the other is that you are female. Look at the stats here. They get SO many more women, the admit rate is < 30%.
Something seriously needs to be done about the weight that URM status places on an applicant's chances at highly selective institutions such as this one. You could look at my tracker for example. No way I was getting into this school.
URM generally refers to African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans.
What do you mean by an under-represented ethnicity? You mean an American Indian, Asian, or African American? Something like that?
that is exactly what I'm saying except I'm saying that you need to be of a under-represented ethnicity (i.e. under-represented minority) given that everyone is of some "ethnicity" :P
So what you're trying to say is that if you're OOS and an ethnicity, your chances of getting in are higher?
I like the school, but I believe OOS, etc. weighs more heavily than my 97.5% chance seems to indicate. The in-state tuition is a screaming deal for such a good school.
it's a huge, stupid discussion. but for state schools in particular they often pull their diversity students (as well as their athletes, etc.) from their out-of-state pools. something to keep in mind.
i'm not saying it's fair (i don't really think it is), but that's the reality of the situation.
are they looking for minorities in particular or something? P:
is that a computer glitch with this program or does W&M weigh heavily on minorities?
vick14800, it's because of your minority status...
it says i have a 100% chance at w&M something must be wrong there is no way
I heard back on March 30th.
I think most instate and international students have heard. But out of state have to wait a week or so. I called the admissions office and they said that everyone should know back by April 4th.
No, I have not as regular decision.
Have people who applied regular decision heard back yet?
