Admit It! You’ve been looking forward to winter break. So have we. And it’s just about upon us. The College of William & Mary and the Office of Undergraduate Admission will be closed beginning Friday, December 21. We will re-open on Thursday, January 3.
While we will continue to process applications and their accompanying materials during the break, our phones will be off, and our staff will be taking a welcome break from their in-boxes. Remember, the freshman Regular Decision deadline is January 1. This is a postmark deadline. We realize that January 1 is a federal holiday; we will therefore gladly accept anything postmarked January 2. We also realize that mistakes happen; if you don’t click submit until 12:01am on January 2, do not worry. Your application will be welcomed.
During this time, if you are experiencing any trouble completing the application, we encourage you to contact the Common Application Help Desk directly. Also, please review our last blog regarding the processing of applications. During the next several weeks we will not be able to immediately verify the receipt of application materials since they come in by the truckload on a daily basis. Remember, we will communicate with you and your parents throughout the processing of your application via email.
If you have questions about a campus visit, note that our spring schedule will be available online in mid-January.
We will check our firstname.lastname@example.org email every day while we are closed (with the exception of December 25). That will be the best way to reach us during the break.
Until then, Admit It! is signing off. Happy holidays and we’ll see everyone in 2013.
