I received my scholarship offer with my acceptance letter last week.

Also, I will be going to the King and Spalding event and the ASW as well, if for no other reason I live next to campus.

To be honest though, I find UGA's recruiting to be kind of pitiful. Compared to Alabama, UGA has done nothing other than try to win me over with the wow factor of King and Spalding. Should be interesting to see how that trip goes.

Just got my scholly offer in the mail, tuition reduction. I've also got in a UNC and I'm in-state. Even with the tuition reduction and in-state 2L and 3L, UNC is still going to be cheaper over 3 years. It would be a more comparable offer if I had gotten the tuition equalizer. Does any one know if UGA is willing to play ball?

It is not that your application is incomplete, just that we have not finished entering your application into our system. Once we have entered it, if there is anything missing you will receive an email letting you know what it is you need to get to us.


I really didn't except UGA to take this long to review my application. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm currently in undergrad at UGA and am tempted to just walk to the law school and demand that they review my application, this is taking entirely to long, the wait is killing me.


One day after posting this I woke up, checked my email and guess what?? Email from Georgia Law
Your application is complete and ready for review by the Admissions Committee.


One step closer! Go Dawgs!

For those of you that got accepted, how long did it take after the email to receive your acceptance packet in the mail?

Should I write a LOCI after being held? Or hold it out.

I am very interested in knowing how this plays out for you. Like many of you, I'm curious to see if UGA has any flexibility in going from tuition reduction to tuition equalization.

For those who were placed on hold... approx how many days after your app went under review did the status checker change to say your app was being held?

Held for further review today. Went complete in October I think.

I'm guessing this is bad.

Anyone else get a call? All I got was the letter/status checker. I'm not really feeling the love from UGA, thats for sure...

Admitted today. Not sure when because I checked in the afternoon and was still held.

Complete 1/26, held within a week, admitted today.

If I get the in-state tuition love, I'm in for sure.
