William & Mary has a fantastic group of applicants again this year and is among a small group of law schools with an increase of applicants for the Class of 2016 compared to last year. We are excited with the interest in legal education at the nation’s oldest law school. Applications to join this special community are the sincerest form of flattery and we are appreciative of the compliment!
The review and evaluation of 5500+ applicant credentials is the challenge. Meeting the outstanding individuals that submit applications is the fun. Placing names and faces with applications makes the experience personal.
Dean Douglas tells the William & Mary story best and is busy doing so! The admission deans enjoy our off-campus recruitment contacts and individual appointments with visitors in our offices.
William & Mary Law School alumni remain involved and form a tremendous network. Our Alumni Ambassadors share their William & Mary experience and their passion. Dean Douglas is vested in the admission program and cares deeply about each and every student.
The connection is personal for applicants as was the spirit during a recent gathering of applicants with alums and Dean Douglas in D.C.
