Nerd School
I would have no chance in hell of getting into UGA if I were 18 today. I almost feel guilty for getting in when I did back in 08.

I’m basically autistic and got in in 1995. I’d have to go to Auburn if I was graduating now

re: Nerd School
We live in Coastal Alabama but I grew up in GA and attended UGA. My daughter applied this past fall and was denied early acceptance and today again denied. Really sucks because her heart was set on it. We have visited several times over the past couple years to ensure this is where she wanted to be. And she really fealt it was. She is part of the National Honors Society, 4.3 GPA and a 31ACT. Damn Hope scholarship.

Don't hate us, she is Ole Miss bound. She could get a free ride to Bama but nope we don't do that and she didn't even apply to AllBarn.

Out of state, out of luck. She would have gotten in if yall lived here.

And FWIW, I'd rather send my kid to Bama than Ole Miss, but you do your kid and I'll do mine.

Bull shite.

All of the metrics used are skewed now. I got in in 96, I didn't have a 4.0, but that's because high schools only had a couple AP classes where you could actually get 4+ on a GPA scale. The SAT and ACT scoring was different. You can't compare the raw stats of today to the raw stats 25 years ago. Apples and oranges.

95-96 was the infancy of HOPE Scholarship, the grade inflation hadn't started yet.

Getting into UGA is insane, your daughter could just knock out her core classes at Ole Miss and transfer to UGA later on if she wants.

Wow... that seems a little silly...

Presidential
A student with a 30-36 ACT or 1360-1600 SAT score and at least a 3.5 GPA will be selected as a Presidential Scholar and will receive the value of tuition, or $43,120 over four years ($10,780 per year). Students graduating with remaining tuition scholarship semester(s) may use these monies toward graduate school and/or law school study at UA.


Bama is a superior program to Ole Miss is just about every way. You guys do you, but that just seems silly. (ETA: specifically was referring to academics here, but honestly, it can be expanded to literally everything)

As someone above stated, take the free ride to Alabama for 2 years and then transfer...

She's obviously smart. I wonder who her real father is.

Same here. My application was two pages. Frick Auburn, though. I'd go to North Georgia in Watkinsville for a couple semesters and then transfer to UGA.

re: Nerd School
My father in law is a Bama graduate, smartest man I know. He pleaded with her to go to Bama but there are several reasons she doesn't want to go. First, it's Bama, have a pulse-you're in, her classmates are all going and she wants to do something different and grow on her own and lastly she wasn't accepted into Honors college there but she was at Ole Miss.

Despite what you think, the criteria for Bama is very low, almost LSU low. She goes to a small school and Bama is huge, Ole Miss is a better size for her in our opinion. Driving into the square at Ole Miss is somewhat similar to UGA as far as older nice homes. The downtown will never compare but it's what she chose and I'll support her because that what a good father does.

Tell your daughter to just take care of business for a year at Ole Miss (protect her GPA) and she can transfer in with ease. Lot of kids end up at UGA from Bama and Ole Miss after a year or two because of her same situation

Dude, at Ole Miss, having a pulse earns you a degree.
