Please read our Denied Student FAQ if you have questions. If you decide to contact us next week, please understand that we will not be able to give you a specific "reason" for a denial, as in this process we have looked at everything within an applicant's file, and the overall reason is really that the overall applicant pool is very large and very strong.
Things to Remember:
- UGA does not use the GPA from a HS transcript, but instead we calculate our own HS GPA based on core academic courses. In our holistic review, we also look at grade trends.
- UGA looks closely at academic rigor, specifically what a student will take over four years as compared to what is available. This is not based simply on the number of AP/IB/DE courses, but instead we look at the overall coursework over four years and the progression of rigor over those four years.
- When we are looking at activities in the holistic review (clubs, sports, pt work, artistic activities, etc.), we are looking at depth and time commitment in these areas in addition to the actual organizations.
