@Bill W, we are aware that there are essay support services available to some students that may not be available to others. The purpose of the essay, as well as our holistic review process in general, is to help us gain an understanding of how a student might contribute to our campus community. Coaching or no coaching, a genuine and informative essay is something of value, and helps us learn more about a given student. We appreciate your family’s sincere interest in William & Mary, and look forward to reviewing your son’s application.
