a past student here
The W has a private school education at a public school cost. It is much cheaper than many of the schools I looked at when applying for college, but you learn so much here, and you get tons of great opportunities when you get involved. I went to Scotland TWICE, met a famous author (Ian Rankin), met tons of authors actually (Welty Symposium), saw a ton of plays, presented original research, was asked to present said research at a conference, and went to Tampa, Florida for an honors conference!!
