7,500 Early Applicants receive Good News from the University of Georgia

University of Georgia

Jumping ahead of many peer institutions, the University of Georgia (UGA) announced yesterday that admissions decisions were released for the more than 12,000 early action (EA) first-year applicants who were organized enough to submit their applications by the October 15th deadline.

Prospective UGA undergads learned their decisions by logging into an online application status check.  And students with completed applications (all supporting materials) received one of 3 possible decisions:  admit, defer, or deny.

According to a press release, UGA received a record 12,100 early action (EA) applications.  As is usually the case, the admitted group is academically strong, boasting of an average GPA of almost 4.0, mean SAT scores of 1364 (plus a writing score of 660), and an average ACT of 30.

Approximately 62 percent of UGA’s EA applicants were offered admission.  In addition to presenting strong numbers, the 7,500 admitted students have enrolled in an average of six to eight Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate classes.  Many have also enrolled in college courses.

Although the early application option is very popular, UGA wants to remind students that they are continuing to receive regular decision applications through January 15, 2014.  Students deferred from the early pool of applicants are encouraged to submit Part II of the application, and if they wish, mid-year senior grades and additional standardized test scores prior to deadline.

This year, UGA expects to receive in the range of 22,000 applications.

Students admitted through the early action option are not bound to accept the offer and may consider other colleges until the national reply date of May 1, 2014.
