    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. It is worth the amount of bucks you get indebted here.

    Georgia is a high-quality school, and with the HOPE schlarship the school is not too expensive.

    It is pretty expensive, compared to, say ABAC, which is in my hometown, but compared to $60,000 a year schools, it looks downright cheap.

    UGA gives a high quality, arguably Ivy League education, for much less than a super prestigious school would cost you.

    For being an in-state school, Zell Miller and HOPE scholarships make UGA the most cost effective school. The meal plan is also reasonably priced for what you get (7 days of food a week in 5 dining halls). Financial aid is always available and what you do pay, is worth the education, experience and general life in Athens and UGA.
