We were the top public college for years or near the top depending on criteria. I still live and work in the area and just about anyone who can get accepted to any local college, community included, can get accepted to WM.
I took a summer course there this past Summer to upgrade my certificate. The class had 1 final test graded, A,B,C. bBasically, it was just a pass/fail. All I had to do was showup. The students were 90% WM, a few locals. They had headphones with rap, wore backpacks like 3rd graders and a ball cap on backwards like a 4th grader.
Terrible ending to a once top college!

W & M need to accept more low income students from East End Newport News and Hampton. White bigots run the Tribe of WM. Get whitey out of W'Burg.

Very simple. Affirmative action. More qualified whites are passed over in admissions for blacks. Notice I did not say Asian, Europeans, etc. Blacks. Other races, especially Asians, excel. I don't support the medicore WM anymore.

The college had an awful president who liked female students a few year ago.

I use to go there and use the library on campus since I still have a Summer School i.d. I see students who are no different than a community college and ads for tutors in college math.

Really though. It is sad. Though the students are liberal as Ivy, at least the education school year ago produced teachers and computer programmers were highly employed from WM. Today, diversity is the game. If you are a black girl from ghetto high, have a c avg., they will pick you up in a limo, put you in the best dorm, pay your books and meals, tuition, and all you need to do is show up 50% of your classes.
