As I promised last week, here are the statistics on the
Admitted Class of 2016. I do not have the stats for the wait-list group (
just over 1100 were offered wait-list) at this time as we do not know
who will remain on the WL, so you will have to be happy with this
information for now. We are thrilled that we had
such a strong applicant pool, and the admitted group is very
impressive. Remember, the statistics I give out are the middle 50%
ranges, so please take that into consideration when viewing the
information. We admitted slightly under 10,300 freshman, and are aiming for a class of 5,000 enrolling students.

  • Mid-50% range for GPA: 3.74-4.04
    (please remember that this is not the GPA you see on your transcript,
    but the GPA that UGA calculates based on the core courses taken in HS,
    and looking at the actual grades on the transcript)
  • Mid-50% range for the SAT CR and M: 1190-1360
  • Mid-50% range for the  SAT Writing: 580-690
  • Mid-50% range for the ACT: 27-31
  • Average number of AP/IB courses: Approximately 6
  • 39% of the freshman admitted to UGA had their strongest test
    score from the ACT, and if their ACT was then translated to the SAT, the
    SAT mid-ranges increase by over 30 points for the combined CR/M.

While we show the average number of AP/IB courses, we look at
the entire course selection, and the accepted students have challenged
themselves with a wide range of Honors and Advanced courses, summer
programs, and a number of college courses taken through Joint
Enrollment/Dual Enrollment programs (roughly 950 accepted students are taking dual enrollment classes).
Statistics can never show
the other qualities that we have seen from our admitted group, from
leadership capabilities to strong writing, being active in their schools
and communities, to showing great growth from freshman to senior year.
to the admitted class of 2016! Now we just have to wait and see who
chooses to attend, so send in your deposit if UGA is your school of

These are all the stats I can give you right
now, so please do not ask for other data, as I will just have to say
no. Our office is focused on phone calls, emails, WL information and
transfer reviews, so I cannot always slog through the data.
