Got a call from a 1L today congratulating me on my acceptance and asking me if I had any questions. Anyone else get this?

I got the call from a current student too. Her area code was also 757.

Haha... I just got a call from 757 as well; unfortunately I just missed it.

I was actually in the process of e-mailing W&M about it...

Got a call as well (ignored it - don't answer calls if I don't know the person)...googled it, and it's from someone who works in the W&M IT Department....kind of strange.

Same here. Didn't recognize the number and, well, I'm in class right now. Still a nice touch, though.

Maybe it was someone pulling a prank. I think they email the decision

Just got an e-mail from a 2L. They're really going outta their way here- but it's kinda cool.

I gues these calls are just for all you VIPs. They know I'm not getting in anywhere better, so they don't want to waste their effort.
Actually, I'm kind of glad you posted this. I was starting to get jealous, but I bet I will feel the same way.

You guys who got these phone calls...do you mind sharing your stats/and or the date you submitted your apps?

I was in the dentist chair when I got the call so I wasn't able to answer either. To answer your questions I submitted in September and my stats are 3.67/164. I believe these are pretty close to their medians so I am definitely not a VIP. Best of luck to everyone else still waiting for a decision.

Why do you care? (I'm not trying to be a smartass. I'm really wondering why you care). I know I'm in, and I've got my offer. The phone call might be a nice touch, but it doesn't change anything (I know, that makes me sound like I care).

Got the call also. I missed it, so ended up calling back and talking to the dean of admissions. She was super nice, so if anyone has any issues and feels the need to call, don't hesitate, she's awesome! I think I would be totally happy at William and Mary!!! Also, I got to check out the actual school during Thanksgiving, and it's awesome as well! Williamsburg is super cool!!!! :D

I think they're for everybody, actually. I got one, and I'm no VIP by W&M standards.

At 75th %ile LSAT, above 75th %ile GPA. I got a nice scholarship, but nothing mind-blowing. I would consider W&M's graduate fellowship recipients to be the VIPs.

But in all honesty, it doesn't matter who is a "VIP" and who isn't. An early acceptance is an early acceptance, and we should all be grateful for having some of the pressure taken off.
