I personally got in based on my test scoresAug 09 2013Political Science
I personally got in based on my test scores and probably somewhat on my GPA. However, my extra curriculars (a few stellar ones rather than a ton of low quality, low time invested ones) helped get me labeled as a Monroe scholar.
In state, just get around a 2000 and a decent GPA with a good extra curricular or two. Out of state get a 2100 and do the same.
If you can get a 2200 then youre basically guaranteed acceptance. if you get a 1800 in state or 1900 out of state, you still can get in if you have good extra curriculars.

The best way to stand out in the applicantSep 01 2012Economics
The best way to stand out in the applicant pool to W&M is to demonstrate your individuality in the context of a community. The students W&M is looking for have distinctive personalities and work well with others at the same time. Honor and personal integrity are also extremely important to W&M.
