Doesn't disappear, just reduces to be the same proportion of tuition, so still substantive. But yeah, take the GRF unless they offer you a lot of scholarship money without it.[/quote]

AP, where is your info coming from? On my award letter it doesn't say it explicitly, but heavily implies that you can only get the 8k if you remain OOS.[/quote]
Email from Dean Shealy confirming prior to matriculation. Current 1L. Maybe things have changed. No reason not to email or call to inquire and confirm.[/quote]

That's REALLY odd.... When I sat down with dean Cavallari last month, she was very specific on saving an additional 10k/year (on top of my scholly) by jumping through the VA residency hoops.

Dean Shealy is super nice, and responds to e-mails instantly if you get it to her east coast morning time. Just ask her.

Has anyone been dinged from the wait list? I know today is the deadline they sent in the email offer for accepting the wait list by not asking to be removed. I noticed they made a few offer on LSN but they seem limited

HEY congratulations! could you share your stats please? I am currently on the waitlist, and W&M is one of my top choices.

Also, did you go visit? or update your file in any way?

check LSN, that stats are on there.
I got in off the waitlist too. I flew out there about a month ago to go visit with Dean Shealy personally and express my interest.
I also sent a LOCI, another rec letter and Phi Beta Kappa acceptance.

good luck!

Accepted off the waitlist with 12k, 167/2.5

I asked for more money and they said no, so I asked to be put back on the waiting list in the off chance that more $ becomes available later

I have never heard of anyone asking to be put back on the waitlist. Ballsy or smart?

Probably neither haha, I just couldnt justify W&M over Alabama or UMN and I didn't want to hold a seat because I know that there are people who are waiting to get in

And they're not going to just let me hang on to that seat and 12k all summer if I don't commit to attending because there are plenty of other qualified applicants on the waiting list

So, instead of completely closing the door on W&M I asked to be put back on the waiting list just in case somehow more $$ were to become available to me. Like if someone who is all set to attend W&M backs out at the last minute and had a lot of $$

Has anyone else on the waitlist been called by a w&m admissions counselor in the last few days asking about your level of continued interest in the school? Is this commonly a good thing lol or just wl protocol for w&m?

I got this call the yesterday after receiving a similar email and responding a few days prior. Guess my email wasn't convincing enough!

I am about to withdraw with $. Tough decision because I love the school and the town, but I just can't turn down a better opportunity. I really hope my spot goes to someone here. Good luck everyone.
