Why I Chose W&J: The main reason was the prestige of the College and of the Economics and Political Science departments.  Also, I went on tour, loved the campus and really could envision myself as a student at W&J.  There is also a great balance between academics and a social scene; there is so much to do at W&J from intramurals, Greek life, clubs and organizations, and entertainment. The last reason was the size of W&J.   I came from a high school where everyone knew everyone else, so I liked that about W&J; the professors know you and are always there to help.
