2012 Freshman Decisions are Available

Final freshman decisions are now available online, and the applicant pool this year was very strong! We had roughly 19,000 applicants, which was our largest applicant pool ever. Here are a few notes about the decisions.
  • Please do no have everyone in your family try to log onto the site. It will only slow down our servers, so I suggest that just you, the student, log in, as multiple people logging in might lock down your myStatus page. You can then share this information after you see it.
  • I do not have any detailed statistics for the admitted or wait-listed group, but I will post them early next week (most likely just the mid 50% ranges). Rough data has the admitted students (all admitted freshman, including earlier admits) with about a 3.87 GPA based on how UGA calculates it (not what is on a HS transcript), an average of about 6 AP or IB classes, and roughly a 29 ACT/1310 SAT CR/M. Please do not post any of your statistics on this blog, as that is not what this is site is about, and there are other places to do this (and many personal stats are not quite how we see them, ie. GPA's, balance of test scores, etc.).
  • Before commenting about any other students who have a decision, please review my elephant fable post, http://ugaadmissions.blogspot.com/2012/03/elephant-parable-2012-edition.html, and understand that you may not know everything about another person.
  • I will delete any comments that are offensive, ask for personal information/stats from others, or are that fall into the unacceptable comment type that which ""bully, intimidate, or harass any user"; "post content that is hateful or threatening" (see New Visitors intro on right side of blog).
  • I have put up three posts this morning, one for each of the three decision possibilities, with details about each decision and some links to FAQ's. Please read everything about a decision before commenting.
  • Please remember that both the other students and the admissions counselors in my office are actual people, and treat them with respect. Before hitting submit on a comment, make sure you actually want to post it.
  • No matter what the decision, know that there a a number of college options, and UGA is just one of them. 
  • After decisions are out, the next steps are up to you, from depositing at a school, signing up for housing, etc. Make sure you take care of everything post-decision! 
  • Go Dawgs!
