2013 Freshman Decisions are Available

Final freshman decisions are now available online.  We had a very strong applicant pool this year! We had about 21,000 applications which was our largest applicant pool ever.  Here are a few notes about decisions:

  • Please do not have multiple family members try to log onto the myStatus.  This will slow down our serves.  We suggest that only the student log in as multiple people logging in could lock down your myStatus.   You can always share this information with family members after you see it.
  • Before commenting about other students who have a decision, please review the Elephant Fable post ( ) and remember that you may not know everything about another student.
  • We will delete any comments that are offensive, ask for personal information/stats from others, or that fall into the unacceptable comment category (Comments that bully, intimidate, or harass any user; Content that is hateful or threatening.  Please see the New Visitors information posted on the right side of the blog).
  • We have posted three blog posts this morning, one for each of the three decision possibilities, with details about each decision and links to FAQs.  Please review everything about a decision before commenting.
  • Please remember that other students and the admissions representatives in our office are people too and treat everyone with respect.  Before hitting submit on a comment, make sure you actually want to post it.
  • We will post statistics about the overall applicant group next week, once that information is available.
  • No matter what your decision is, remember that there are a number of college options and UGA is just one of them.
  • After decisions are out, the next steps are up to you.  Whether you are depositing at UGA or another school, signing up for Housing, or registering for Orientation.  Make sure you take care of everything you need to post-decision.
Go Dawgs!


  1. Hi, I would thank for all your hard work, patience, and consideration for me on the wait list! I hope I can make it! Once again, thanks! :)

  2. Thank you for such a great application experience. I can't waiiiiittttt for football season :)

  3. I cant believe that someone that got the uga merit award, is taking 5 AP classes this semester, is number 7 in his class, and has over a 4.0 gpa did not get accepted to uga. What is the problem?

    1. Sounds a lot like a few others I heard of. Honestly some of those students sound even better than myself and I got in no problem.

  4. So a 4.1 gpa, eagle scout, service oriented student with more than 150 reported beta hours, raised 1500 dollars for cystic fibrosis and various other organizations didnt get accepted why?

  5. This does not fit into any exact profile of any applicants we have (a 4.00 being all A's), but I would suggest you also look at what you did not include, such as activities, leadership, sr grades, and test scores, just to name a few. We look at a wide range of things, not just what you feel are your strengths. Remember, there were a large number of very strong applicants.

  6. My friend has recieved a t shirt for orientation and a pair of shades from uga since being accepted. Yet, I (who was also accepted) have not received anything. Why?
