Follow this category via RSS. A high school student wants the community to provide feedback on her chances of being admitted to Williams. They also generally provide a mass of irrelevant data. The same advice applies to most elite colleges. Please read How Admissions Works at Williams. First, estimate your Academic Rating and provide the key evidence behind that estimate. Background information here and here.
Cash in your own name is cash that Williams or any school will take. Morty mentioned some changes in this regard — making it less detrimental for a student to have money in his own name — but I am no expert on financial aid. I think that the College does not count retirement savings in its calculation of EFC — expected family contribution.
But who knows? The Record ought to investigate. How much can it possibly understand about tax forms and financial statement in dozens of other countries, written in so many languages? What about for a US student? A question from a troll-started thread on College Confidential.
At Harvard commencement so the story goesthe graduating students form lines, and applaud as the faculty marches between them. At Williams commencement so the story goesthe faculty form lines, and applaud as the graduating students march between them.
At Williams, faculty are expected to attend. Is Williams financial aid stingy or generous? Consider some recent claims on College Confidential:. I am disappointed with the financial aid offer I received from Williams. How have others found their financial aid offers? I was a bit surprised at the difference…is this common? Others are happy with their offers, noting that the deal from Williams is the best that they received. And College Confidential is hardly an unbiased sample. And who could blame them?
Even though I think that most of the students who choose Harvard over Williams would have been better off choosing Williams all else equalI have a had time insisting that someone should pay extra to go to Williams.
Instead of spending money on things like Mount Greylock Regional High School, Williams ought to ensure that its financial aid packages are comparable to those offered by its competitors.
Who will write it? Every school calculates aid differently, in same cases, you will do better at Williams than its peers, in some cases including yours, alas worse.
Considering both schools now require no loans at all, I am pretty surprised at the difference. What happens when an admitted student does this? Our offer is fixed. Reasonable people can differ about what the policy should be, but thousands of us are curious about what the policy actually is.
The Record should tell us. Start by contacting Daniel Olson. See herehere and here for recent examples. The authors said that limited information in the databases used to compare DNA results might lead people to draw the wrong conclusions or to misinterpret results. You think? By the way, Troy Duster is an Eph, via honorary degree.

Previous entries here. Does Williams really want to provide them with affirmative action? Note that the Common Application gives you almost complete latitude in what boxes you check.
The Admissions Department only wants to give preferences to students who really are African-American, who add to the diversity of Williams because their experiences provide them with a very different outlook than their non-African-American peers. How can you bring any meaningful diversity if you never thought of yourself as African-American or were so thought of by others until the fall of senior year?
The point here is not that the current admissions policy at Williams is bad or good. It is what it is. The point is that there are significant preferences given to those who check certain boxes and that cheap genetic testing will provide many people with a plausible excuse to check boxes that, a few years ago, they did not have. How much will the admissions process change as a result?
Time will tell. It will be very interesting to look at the time series of application by ethnic group over this decade. I predict that the raw number and total pool percentage of African-American and Hispanic applicants will increase sharply. There are, allegedly, 49 or so African-Americans in the class of Want to bet? I have no doubt that the admissions office is being honest — 49 students did indeed check that box. But, could an outsider look at pictures of all the members of the class of and pick out those 49 individuals?
I doubt it. The Record ought to give it a try. Background information here. Not hard to do if a lot of applicants start checking that box. A question from College Confidential. I know people in other entries who are already really tight with their suitemates or entrymates, and my JAs said that their best friends now were all in their entry freshman year. Do most people stay really close to their entrymates all four years and not really make other friends?Date A President - Katt Williams: It's Pimpin' Pimpin'
Interesting discussion with lots of good advice follows. Regular readers will know what occurred to me: Great topic for a senior thesis! What is the friendship network among Williams students? How does it form and change over time? The story is about the use of myspace, facebook and other social networking sites by college admissions officers. According to the Williams Admissions office, a few years ago Williams college rejected a student after viewing their myspace profile.
A member of Public Affairs at Williams College confirmed this did happen but is unwilling to comment. My question for you, the bloggers on ephblog, and anyone who may know is…Have you ever heard of this student?
Do you know anything more about the incident? Our story really depends on finding more information about this student. This caused much mockery on CC and some discussion here.
I think that this was a couple of years ago, before Facebook was open to high schoolers. Surely there is an EphBlog reader who knows the details. Help out our friends at WHDH.
It is fairly obvious that anything you post on the Internet might come back to haunt you, but, really, it is anything electronic. Related EphBlog discussion here and here.

Question: How many classes are currently full and which ones are they? It would be great to see that information and discuss it. Do they? Do you know if Williams is experiencing the same? Yield management is a black art, so it is tough for any outsider to know what is going on.
Extensive discussion here. From the Admissions Office:. We do not rank our waitlist, and we have made, and could still make, offers to both American and non-U. We hope to make all waitlist decisions by the end of May; however, in past years, the process has, on occasion, stretched into early June, at which point, we will notify all non-admitted candidates.
We will notify students directly by email or phone if we are able to make them an offer.
If you're not into the party scene or hooking up then where does that leave your love life here at Williams College? No one ever goes out on. Williams, a private college known for dedicated faculty, dynamic student Williams' dating scene is debatably lacking, though it may not be an. Williams is not the only one thinking about millennials and our potentially College dating isn't all rainbows and sparkles. I didn't First, let me rule out the buzz phrase hookup culture as a cause of our broken social scene.
Our committee tries to look at as many files as possible in making decisions among a highly qualified group of candidates. The Record reported :. With deposits for the Class of still trickling in this week, admitted students have confirmed their spots with the admission office as of yesterday, for a yield of The office had nearly the same number of deposits at this time last year when the yield was With a 49 percent yield two years ago, yield appears to have fallen for the second year in a row, though more deposits will arrive this month.
Over the last few days, 25 of the students on the waitlist have been offered spots with a target class size of These students have a week to decide whether or not to join the students matriculating via regular decision and the admitted via early decision.
My guess is that Amherst admitted a bunch of students that were unlike students it has admitted in the past. A thread on College Confidential comparing Amherst with Williams linked to EphBlog, suckering me into making this comment :. Female applicants hoping to date young men of similar intelligence are wise to consider the gender ratio in the 5 college area. Those odds lead to the sort of behavior you might expect from young men. Male applicants instead of being confused by the above should consider the difference in common sense demonstrated by female Ephs and female Jeffs in deciding where to go to school.
