Waitlisted at William and Mary

Postby IamKrisBars » Tue Mar 27, 2018 6:33 pm

I got waitlisted at W&M which is a total surprise to me (good surprise). I got the decision today. How long should I wait / When should I write a letter of continued interest?

Statements of Intent are due on Sunday so I anticipate some spots will open up.

I actually just relinquished my seat so there's at least one. It's a great school I just have different geo preferences

Best of luck to you both!

What were your numbers if you dont mind?

Lsat: 156
GPA 2.93
Degree GPA: 3.93

I have a VERY strong upward trend in the last 3 years (5 consecutive 4.0's and a 3.83)
strong letters of rec
and what i believe was a very strong personal statement (tied my fathers tragic car accident and my climbing a mountain together to portray perseverance in difficult situations)

Also a C&F issue of DWAI

He was accepted. He's talking about statements of intent for those who were admitted, not statements of interest for those who were waitlisted
