University of Georgia released its Early Action admissions decisions for the class of 2024 on Friday, November 22, 2019. UGA received 16,511 paid applications for Early Action this year, and the university will offer admission to 7,025 of these applicants.
In addition, according to Davide Graves, University of Georgia’s Senior Associate Director of Admissions Operations and Evaluation, here are some more interesting facts about students accepted in fall 2019 under University of Georgia’s Early Action plan:
Mid 50% Admitted Average GPA: 4.00-4.29 GPA
Graves’ comments: “Please remember this is not the GPA students see on their high school transcript, but rather the GPA that UGA recalculates for everyone based on the core academic courses taken in high school and looking at the actual grades posted on the transcripts.”
Mid 50% Admitted Average SAT (EBRW+M): 1360-1500
Graves’ comments: “This is data for students who were admitted with the SAT being the highest or only test score in their review.”
Mid 50% Admitted Average ACT (Composite): 31-34
Graves’ comments: “This is data for students who were admitted with the ACT being the highest or only test score in their review. Remember, UGA focuses on the ACT English and Math scores, but we report the Composite data as that is the official/accepted data for national publications.”
Mid 50% Admitted AP/IB/DE courses over 4 years of HS: 7-12 courses
Graves’ comments: “We determine academic rigor based on all core classes a student has taken (CP, Honors, Advanced, AP, IB, DE, etc.) as compared to what is offered in the school/community, but this information is the most specific data we can give on it. This does not mean a student needed 7 AP/IB/DE courses to be admitted, as we do not base rigor on the number of these courses taken.”
So, all in, there were 7,025 admits, approximately 6,800 deferred, roughly 2,100 denied, and slightly over 300 incomplete.
Graves adds, “As a reminder, UGA looks at in-state and out-of-state applicants using the same process. In addition, we do not have any limits on the number of students we can admit based on school, neighborhood, county or state, and we do not use major, gender, race, demonstrated interest or legacy status in our review process. We are looking at each individual applicant in the context of the overall applicant pool, and making decisions based on both the EA applicant group and what we expect the applicant pool (EA and RD) will be like overall. I suggest you look at the Admissions Tips, Hints & Myths page for more details about what we do and do not look at in our review.”
