The February freshman admission offers are now available on the myStatus page.

afternoon, UGA offered admission to a group of roughly 1,600 freshman
applicants. This group of decisions is made up of only offers of admission,
and if you were admitted, you will be able to see the decision on your
myStatus page (so only admitted students will see a change on their myStatus page).
Additionally, an admissions packet will be sent out in the mail early
next week. Our office is too busy reviewing files for me to run any
mid-range academic averages at this time, but the academic information
should be very similar to the Early Action admitted students (it will
not be exactly the same, as we had a large number of EA admits who were
applying for our top scholarships, which slightly skews EA stats a
higher). The press release about our Early Action decisions gives more details on the academic averages for this group. As we did in the November Early Action offers of admission, there will be some scholarship offers in this group, and those who have received them will see it on the status page (the scholarship section only shows if a scholarship is offered). We will continue to offer scholarships through early April, so please be patient as we do these reviews.

These admitted freshman, made up of mostly
Regular Decision applicants, met the stringent
academic criteria of Early Action admission that we used with our
much larger wave of November admission offers. Do not panic if you were
admitted with this February group. We are still very much in the midst
of carefully reviewing documents and data on a great many more files,
and there are still lots of decisions to make.  Again, admitted students will
see their decision on myStatus, while applicants who do not yet have a
decision will see the same myStatus message as before.
The final wave of
freshman application decisions will be made by mid-late
March after we have completed our holistic file reading process. Thank
you for your patience as we finish our reviews over the next month.

Lastly, please make sure to review the Urban Legends page and all my posts about ignoring myths that you might hear about admissions, as these myths are incorrect (major has no impact on a decision, we do not limit the number of admission offers by school, zip code, etc.). As well, please remember that I cannot discuss any other students on this blog, I cannot guess about decisions, and I ask that any comments should not be harmful to other applicants.

Go Dawgs!
