I hope these will answer a few questions for everyone, and I will try to keep this blog updated with details of what is happening in the Admissions process, and give a few more hints along the way.

Thoughts on the upcoming freshman for Fall 2010

It is early summer at UGA, which means it is already time to start thinking about freshmen applying for the Summer/Fall of 2010. Our office just began the implementation of an imaging process yesterday, so it will mean the end of paper files for next year. No more paper cuts, searching for files, or moving files back and forth between people in the office. But it is also the time to start thinking about next year's class, and getting everything ready for a new group of applicants. I will post next year's application essays on our website tomorrow, along with a few new web pages giving advice on the admission process and essay writing. Now you are probably thinking, why is this guy starting a blog about UGA Admissions? After being stopped for the 300th time in a grocery store, little league game, or at a restaurant to answer questions about admissions, or just to shoot down admissions myths, I thought it was time to share these answers with the world (or at least just my small part of it). I should also pay thanks to other admissions individuals who have great blogs, from Dean J. at UVA to Scott V. at USC, and all the other admissions individuals who are helping make the process clearer. More to come shortly!!
