As you may know, the Common Application system has undergone a significant update, aspects of which are still in progress. Though W&L does not plan to adjust our application deadlines, please know that our intention is to be flexible with students when Common Application technical issues create difficulty submitting all the needed application components.
Also, please note that the ongoing technical issues with the Common Application might manifest themselves differently for different students. In particular, when you log into your GHQ account to view your applicant checklist showing what application documents W&L has received, be aware that it is possible some items you have submitted might not appear as such on your checklist. To date we know this issue affects two items in particular (the application fee and the Early Decision Agreement), though it might be affecting others as well.
If you should notice inconsistencies between your GHQ application checklist and your Common Application record of documents that you have submitted, please feel free to email us at email@example.com. We will be happy to reply and confirm which documents we have received and which we have not. Thank you for your patience as we and our colleagues at the Common Application work toward improving this year's application experience for everyone concerned.
College isn't just classes and a campus, it's a four year experience. It's your life. At Washington and Lee University that experience includes a course catalog so varied it resembles a phone book. A student body that is active and engaged in everything from mountain climbing to Mock Convention. A campus that is connected to its past while looking forward to its future. And a setting that is both traditional and cutting-edge. We hope that you'll take the time to dig deeper into our website. But we know that choosing a college is more than just pictures on a website. So we invite you to take the time to experience W&L and visit our campus.
