Our Admission Deans


Faye Shealy
Associate Dean for Admission

About Me
Growing up in Virginia, I knew that William & Mary was a gem of an institution. I have spent my academic and professional careers in Virginia’s public education system, earning degrees from Virginia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth University (my freshman year at Tech was the first year women were permitted to wear pants on campus!).  After completing my Ed.D. at Tech, I was offered an opportunity to join the William & Mary community.  It has been an honor to represent the Law School to prospective students since 1982.

Why William & Mary
Outstanding students come to study law at William & Mary in a community where students build relationships with our nationally-recognized faculty. Our size allows all students the opportunity to excel, to find their niche, and to develop career paths that are best-suited to their individual goals.

Greatest Professional Privileges
Meeting so many people with such diverse backgrounds while they are in the first stages of planning a legal education and career. Regardless of where they enroll, their opportunities are endless, and introducing them to William & Mary Law School is a joy. Also, getting to know our students, watching them celebrate with their families during graduation weekend and following their impressive careers.

My Williamsburg Favorites
Walks down Duke of Gloucester Street (only two blocks from the Law School), kayaking in the James River, golf at Kingsmill, art festivals in Merchant Square, Cheese Shop sandwiches with house dressing, and good friends including our great admission team. Our team members are anxious to provide individual help to candidates and to make their lives less stressful during the application process.

About Me
Even though I was born in Virginia, I claim North Texas as my childhood home. I attended Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri for undergrad where I studied health sciences in hopes of joining the medical field after graduation. Somewhere along the way I realized that there is a whole career that lets you stay in college forever, and so I joined the Admissions team and traveled across the Midwest. After four years, I decided that higher education was definitely my cup of tea, and moved across the country to attend William & Mary, where I graduated in 2017 with my Masters of Education in Higher Education Administration. Having been focused on the first-year student experience and student success initiatives, it felt natural to return to Admissions with the Law School in pursuit of supporting the graduate student experience. I am elated to be a part of the “A-Team” and work closely with our Student Admission Ambassadors, social media and marketing, and meeting the best and brightest across the country interested in pursuing their legal education at the oldest law school in the nation!

Why William & Mary
It’s a testament to the foundational leadership of men like Thomas Jefferson, George Wythe, and John Marshall that our historic school continues to be a member of the elite law schools in the country. It’s a testament to the curious, driven, passionate students, faculty, and staff that our community thrives and flourishes in support of those students who have chosen this place as their home. You may find excellent legal education across the country, but you won’t find it in quite as unique and special of a place as William & Mary!

My Williamsburg Favorites
Farmers Market Saturdays with my pup and husband, Sno-To-Go stuffed snoballs (try the Shark Attack – trust me!), and Christmas in Colonial Williamsburg. There is always something to do and somewhere to visit, and when there isn’t, have a drink on the patio of Aromas or Blue Talon and enjoy the views!viagra buy
