Starting today, we begin offering admission to almost 100 students who had accepted our offer to be on our Wait List. Since we have filled our Fall class from those admitted and who paid their deposit, the few offered admission from the Waiting List will begin their UGA First Year enrollment in January for the Spring 2014 term. The day each of these admission decisions are made, we will email the good news with attached information about their two-week Commitment Deposit deadline, campus housing, Orientation and other pre-enrollment issues. At the same time we will update their Status Check.
The good news for the University is that spots for Fall admission were totally filled by admitted students who sent deposits by the Commitment deadline. But that left only a handful of Wait List spots, almost all for the Spring term. As soon as possible in the coming days, we plan to email the rest of the 700 or so wait-listed students who cannot be offered admission and update their Status Check screens one final time.
For those many good students we were not able to admit from the Wait List, we thank you for choosing us as one of the options for your higher education. We wish you the very best of college success. We understand that this is not the news you were hoping for, and we very much appreciate your patience “waiting on the Waiting List.” Also, please remember that there are a number of complex reasons why the University made the final decisions it did, and we respectfully remind all that this blog cannot be used for comments about why you or other individuals did or did not get admitted in this last round of consideration.
