People are friendly and the alumni network is the best.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

For the rank, WM is definitely a great school for your money. It's cheaper than most schools, has a great alumni network, wonderful and helpful professors, and interesting classes, clinics, and externship opportunities. They also emphasize participation in school teams, extracurriculars, clubs, and volunteering. However, the career services office is only helpful with resumes and cover letters, and a very specific set of career interests and locations. Beyond that, you are on your own. Also, it's in Williamsburg, VA which is little more than a tourist attraction and a time warp back to colonial days. This is helpful because there isn't anything to distract you from studying, but can make you go stir-crazy.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

William and Mary is a well established and reputable school, and my legal education has been consistent with those facts. I have been impressed and pleased with the administration, faculty and staff and although every school has its kinks overall I am extremely happy with my decision and would make it again.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Administration is a bit stodgy and the legal practice program needs more work. But a great value and a well-regarded school.

Degree: Law

I think law school generally is a drag, but W&M is a good enough place to go if you can be self-directed and work towards what you want.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

William and Mary Law offers an unparalleled value for a law school. The cheap in-state tuition, low cost of living, and strong school reputation are all incentives to attend. The atmosphere is collegial, and the professors are motivated teachers who are accessible outside the classroom. The town itself is fantastic, but students from larger cities may find it lacks an equivalent social scene.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2016

The Professors are wonderful. They are committed to helping all the grad students achieve success. The program is small. The surrounding area offers a lot of different historical sites, but not much else.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2013

Best part of this program is the faculty and welcoming environment. Maybe not quite as prestigious as the very top schools, but a great graduate education and experience with many diverse fields of study possible. Not much excitement in the surrounding area, so be ready to concentrate mainly on school.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is amazing. As an undergraduate, I went to The College of William and Mary. Now, I am continuing my education as a graduate student. The sense of community and tradition is indescribable. Not to mention the academic honors that William and Mary is widely known for. The people that I have met and work with are second to none. I truly believe that my experiences in my M.Ed in School Counseling program are preparing me to become a highly effective and much needed Professional School Counselor. The only con about my program is knowing that I will have to leave at the end.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: teaching and research assistantships for Master's and PhD students; professors are very approachable and willing to help even students who are not their advisees; historical sites, Busch Gardens, beaches, Richmond, etc. are nearby Cons: small graduate program; social scene is typical of a small town
