Title: Ding at UGA
Post by: Nole on March 08, 2005, 12:26:54 PM
Don't think I would have actually gone there since I went to HS 20 min. away but it still sucks. It was in my top 4-5 and I want to have some choices in my top 4-5. I got into one (Wake) and now I am out at UGA. Not surprised with my numbers but it still sucks. Too bad I am not in state anymore. But oh well. Checked the online status checker and that is how I found out. Just kind of an (expected) bummer.  :(

Really sorry to hear that, my UGA online status check buddy  :(

I know. Weird b/c I got so used to checking it CONSTANTLY  ;) and it saying the same thing. Then I go today and I had to do a double take. DAMN! Well I guess it is a good thing since I most likely (90% chance) was not going to go there and I would not want to take the acceptance of someone who really wants to go. Guess I just feel a little rejected by my "home" school. No love. [sigh]

It sounds like you're dealing with this very well...

If you don't mind, what was your online status before you found out the final decision? I think the rest of us might get a better idea of what to expect next. THANK YOU!

Nolegirl, my GPA is very similiar to your and my LSAT is over 10 points lower than yours.  My application was complete at UGA since last year, but I still haven't heard anything yet.  Status check just said complete/in review or something like that.  I guess I should expect a "ding" as well then.

Yeah it said, for like a month or 3 weeks, " Your application is in review. This usually takes several weeks." Then it said today " We're sorry. Your application for admission has been denied." Boo on them  :P Anyway, you never know. My app is kinda unusual so just because I did not get in does not mean anyting. Especially if you are in state.

nolegirl3,

I am about to check online too.  With your # I dont stand a chance, as if I did in any way shape or form.  Here I go, off to check my status online, I feel a tear coming on.

No ding yet, inevitable, but not today.

Don't get your hopes up. I am a auto-reject, at least numbers wise and online it still stays in committee.

I also received the big ding from UGA, which was followed closely by a ding from Wake.  Dings hurt.

I have been thanking the gods for Wake all week. If I did not have that admit and I had gotten the ding at UGA this week, I would be panicking right now. At least I know, even if I get dings from Colorado and Alabama, I will be going to a school I really want to attend. But dings never feel good. That is for sure  :'(

I can't believe I posted this about a months ago....and guess what... still NO decision from UGA?  What's up with that?  Denied me!!! Waitlist me!!! Do something.  In addition to UGA, I still have several other schools that were complete since last year and still no decision....those were completed for almost half a year.

That is crazy. You and botox. Have you called them? What do they say? I know they are not the most helpful admissions office but geez! Of course, I am in the same boat with Bama. Thank god they do not have a status checker. I would have gone officially mad by now!

i have been complete since mid october, and still no decision.  i called the admissions office and they told me that its not unusual that i've waited almost 6 months, and that they "would try" to make all decisions by may 1st.

OUCH.  I thought I was at least going to get waitlisted.  :'(

The worst part is...I found out that the recommendation letter that probably would've really helped me out wasn't in my file when it was reviewed.  It was sent directly to the law school admissions office and they never received it.  By the time I followed up and had it resent, it was too late to get it in my file.  I guess it's my own fault for not following up in enough time to get it in.   >:(

My online status STILL says "Your application for admission has entered the committee review process. This process usually takes several weeks." 

Once again, my application was completed last year.

Many of my fellow classmates at Georgia Tech used to say, "If you cannot go to college, go to Georgia."

They were very wise.   ;)

so, if you got a "ding" from Georgia, don't feel bad.  It is a blessing.   ;D
