College of William and Mary Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
At the time was a very challenging university. Although I didn't care to take subjects outside science and math, I'm glad I was forced to do so. The liberal arts program made me more well rounded and forced me to focus on writing--and being able to write and speak well pay dividends and you move up in life. William and Mary taught me how to think--and for that I will be eternally grateful.
It's a very traditional school, both in terms of culture and student body. If you're coming from out-of-state, be prepared to find most in-state students are a little less intelligent than you may expect, but very hard-working. The school is tailored towards that portion of the student body -- expect lots of homework and "busywork" and not many intellectual challenges until you get into the graduate-level courses.
Excellent program with excellent experienced faculty. Faculty not only know how to teach the content, but have the experience in the real world to make the content relevant and meaningful. Students are very involved in the education community and are encouraged to be involved. Leadership is a strong component of the program. The program truly develops knowledgeable and experienced leaders who are well-prepared for respective education fields.
Absolutely phenomenal college. William and Mary is big on community and big on community service. The people you meet during your first year will more than likely be your friends on the day that you graduate, and everyone you meet in-between will impact your life in a very meaningful way. William and Mary taught me a lot and challenged me every day. It is a beautiful and historic campus that everybody should definitely visit, at least once.
William and Mary was a wonderful environment in which to learn. The liberal arts program allows one to learn about various subjects along with their desired major. The friendships made while there will last a lifetime.
It is an excellent academic institution with high quality instructors and rigorous courses.
Undergrad reputation is often under-rated when weighed against grades and reputation within the specific field you wish to pursue. Some colleges are obviously better than others but also much more expensive. College education is important for careers in our culture but use it to get internships; internships are more likely to get you your first job than a degree without any experience.
It's an absolutely wonderful environment full of quirky people who are willing to learn about almost anything. It provides wonderful opportunities for involvement both on campus and in the surrounding community.
My school was a good fit because it was small.
I would still choose to get a degree in Computer Science. I probably wouldn't get a Master's Degree again, though.
School was far from a good fit since at that time it was very conservative and I was not.
Maybe would chose the same degree since there has been so much intersting research on cognition since I graduated.
Get a degree, any degree!
