Wait List Process Completed

At this time, we have offered a limited number of students admission for fall term off the 2012 wait-list (approximately 130-140 students), and a smaller number of students spring admission off the wait-list (approximately 30-35 students). Based on the "Yes" responses we have received so far, we have determined that we are not able to offer admission to any further students off the wait-list for either fall or spring. We also know that some admitted freshman will decide not to attend UGA, and we have built this into our decision numbers.

For the group of students where we were not able to offer admission off the wait-list, we are sorry that we could not do so, and we wish you well at the college you have chosen. You will receive an email with this notification shortly, followed up by a letter. While we understand that this is not the news you were hoping for, we have tried to move as quickly as possible with the process, and we hope that by moving forward earlier and finishing the process well before the projected end date (about 40 days earlier), this will allow you to move forward with other plans easily. Please remember that there are a number of reasons why we have made the decisions we did, and I would not be able to answer any comments asking why someone did or did not get admitted off the wait-list.
