Find Your Place
At William & Mary, you are connected to students, alumni and educators that are willing to go the extra mile for you. Your network of support builds before you enter the university as you engage with a tenured and knowledgeable Admissions Advisor. Your advisor acts as your personal point of contact and advocate, saving you time and guiding you through the application process.
The community of William & Mary is the thing that makes this place and this program so special. There are other top-flight academic institutions like William & Mary, but there are very few, I think, that have the kind of community and dedication to one another that you’ll find here.
