I really didn't have a "trick" to getting intoJan 04 2005Social Work
I really didn't have a "trick" to getting into the University. In fact, I was originally deferred. UGA does that. They love to defer A LOT of people, but I wouldn't stress out about it, because many of those people (like myself and my friends) end up getting in. UGA is very, very big on diversity, giving what I consider a really unfair advantage to minority students (they have gotten in trouble for this in the past), so I can tell you that you definitely get quite a bit of extra points from the admissions office if you're a minority. Other than that, your SAT and ACT scores are pretty much the most important factor. It's pretty black and white; they don't seem to care much about AP classes as much as they do your solid GPA (in other words, I have found that they care more about a College Prep student with a 4.0 than an Advanced Placement student with a 3.0
ACT: 25 SAT: 1110 Female

Write a good essay. Get good recommendations. Pray (if you're into that)

DON'T TRANSFER and apply to high-demand majors such asNov 03 2004Art & Design Department
DON'T TRANSFER and apply to high-demand majors such as the Terry College of Business, or Grady Journalsm schools. You will NOT get in. Apply to something else first or go undecided so u can get in.
Otherwise as a freshman, just good grades, nice essay, and good extracurricuars. It's increasingly competitive these days though. Oh, and if u are a minority, they will practically pick u up in a limo and escort u to campus. You could probably mispell your own name and they'd let u in! UGA is SO majority white well-to-do students.
SAT: 1190 Female
It's not hard to get in academically - thereOct 02 2004Unknown
It's not hard to get in academically - there are a wide range of grades. What I think they look at is that students in high school have an ability to balance reasonably decent grades with outside activities.
SAT: 1380 Female
I transferred in and applied via the UGA websiteApr 08 2004Journalism
I transferred in and applied via the UGA website. I recommend students to apply, period. When applying, just be yourself.
