Take the SAT and ACT as many times as possible, sign up for as many APs as YOU CAN HANDLE. Georgia is extremely selective these days. The average GPA for incoming freshman in 2009 is 3.9 with a 1300 SAT and 30 ACT score. It is important to take the standardized tests as much as possible to get the best score you can. Also, UGA wants to see that you are challenging yourself. APs are the best way to do so. And the more hours you have coming in as a freshman, the easier your life will be. You can...

  • I am a current student here

    What I love most about UGA is the true freedom to be or do anything that you’ve always been afraid to have been or done back in high school. Dreams come true here, and going here just opens all the past dormant doors of my life, and fills them in with vast opportunities, perks in life, memories, and happiness. I love that I could finally be myself here, and really strive for my STEM passion of being a doctor, while at the same time, building strong friendships and living my best life here. Somehow, even with all the hard work in classes, and busy schedules with extracurricular activities, I’m still the happiest I’ve ever been because being accepted early-action into such a prestigious, beautiful, and quaint school finally confirmed to me what I should have known for a long time. UGA has one of the best reputations of schools in Georgia, and by coming here, I finally started to truly believe in myself and my intelligence, diligence, and capability of achieving any goal I put my mind to. I also could have the real, big personality I’ve always had, and meet the people who accepted and loved me for who I am. I love the happiness I get when I walk up to North Campus and meditate with the sun shining on me and bulldog statues looking down on me. I love even the grueling courses that I always get through, because I come out stronger and feel the accomplishment of passing a difficult UGA course. I love the fan energy of everyone who attends here. I never loved red and black so much until I got here. I guess what I’m saying is that I love everything about UGA.

    The University of Georgia has a large population that has a diverse amount of talents, backgrounds, and personalities. Professors, for the most part, will answer questions if you have them, but you have to seek them out. Class sizes vary, some of them are 200+ people, others are 13, but they usually have good information, but are very rigorous.
