Did you guys write the "why W&M essay"? I didn't and have been under review for a few days and haven't heard. Getting nervous/kicking myself for not writing it.


I did not but I wrote an extra essay for one of the fellowships

I haven't submitted my app yet, and I'm not seeing a space for a "why W&M" essay. Which essay are you referring to?


Is it not an optional essay? I could be getting it confused with another application.


The only optional essays I'm seeing are for the various fellowships. Of course, there's an optional addenda section where you can add anything you want, but there's no "why W&M." Don't sweat it, either way. Impact would be minimal.

My application is under review, however because of the storm admissions is really behind. So if you applied within the last two weeks the status updates may not happen. Some are being reviewed quicker than others.

There may be no "Why W&M" essay, but I wrote an new PS specifically for W&M. Hopefully this gets me some admissions points haha

Status: File is Complete and in Review Process
Current Status Date: 11/14/2012
Submitted: 11/07/2012

Excited! I noticed that for a lot of people decisions were rendered shortly after their files went complete. But, I won't hold my breath.

On my status checker my application has been complete and in the review process since 11/08, however I just received an email saying that my file is complete. I received the same email last Thursday. Do you think this is just a glitch of some sort? My app status still says complete and in the review process, however in the bottom left it says that my application has been complete since 11/14 despite being complete and in the review process since 11/08 in the top left.

It might mean that it was sent for further review. I know that Berkeley does an initial review and at that point you can be accepted, rejected or sent to the committee for further review. When you are sent for further review you get a status update similar to this. Maybe this is the case here? Just a thought.

Seems reasonable. Thanks. Also perhaps the status checker is manually updated and the email is sent automatically and computer prompted. I know this is all baseless speculation but it is something to keep the mind busy while waiting for results!

Maybe someone braver than me can call and ask them.

Guh!!! I submitted my app on the 12th, see nothing on the status checker under "status" besides

Term: Fall
Year: 2013
Program Time: Full Time
Degree: JD

In the initial e-mail it said to expect 2-4 weeks before my application is complete but from what everyone has been saying that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm applying binding ED to Northwestern but W&M seems like an amazing school and I know getting in ED to NU is a stretch for me (3.72 LSDAS GPA/168, strong softs & LOR's) so I'm hoping for something good from W&M haha. Anyone remember how long it took for their application to be considered "complete"? Should I be concerned that something's missing?

mine took forever to go complete, then after it did I had a decision in something like 2 or 3 business days, and my numbers were almost identical to you (168/3.68) hope that helps ease your mind =)

Thank you, that definitely makes me feel better. Hope your decision was good...? Ugh. This whole process is just so ridiculously stressful.

To those that were admitted, would you mind sharing the progression of your status? For example, Initial email notification of file receipt, File complete, File complete and being reviewed, and then this email that at least three of us got today announcing that our files are complete? I know this has already been done but as we said earlier, our status checkers said we were complete and in review last week yet we only just received the email stating that our file was complete today. Was this email the same with you admitted folks?

I sent in my app on 11/2, received confirmation and my status checker 11/5, file complete email 11/7, and received my decision via email 11/13 along with notification via status checker that the acceptance package is in the mail. I didn't get a second file complete email.

Honestly, mine went from submitted to accepted so quickly I didn't check my status in between. I went from submitted to accepted in less then 10 days. I wasn't expecting anything at least until the end of the month so I hadn't even looked before I got the email. I know that isn't really helpful.

Got my acceptance packet in the mail today! I'm out of state but they offered me a graduate fellowship with in-state tuition, a $4k per year stipend, and an $18k per year additional scholarship, totaling $31,000 per year! I also did not write any additional essays
