“William & Mary anticipates enrolling 1,524 undergraduates in the Class of 2019, including 24 in the St Andrews William & Mary Joint Degree Programme. The freshmen were selected from a pool of 14,953 applicants, setting a new record for the university for the 11th consecutive year.
“The group is diverse and academically accomplished. Students of color make up 28 percent of the class, and 10 percent are first-generation students. Additionally, 7 percent of the class is made up of international students. The SAT middle 50th percentile is 1260-1460, and 81 percent of students with class rank graduated in the top 10 percent of their classes.
“The new freshmen also boast a large array of interests and experiences; the Class of 2019 includes a nationally ranked chess player who also performs stand-up comedy, a Scottish fiddle champion, a student who scaled Mount Kilimanjaro and a member of Team USA for competitive sport stacking.
“In addition to the entering freshmen, William & Mary expects to welcome 200 new transfer students to campus this semester.”
We look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks!
