The State Botanical Garden, just outside of Athens, is worth a visit during the spring blooms, too. Just bring your allergy meds.

For those of you wondering how easy it is to become a GA resident, it's very easy. There are several factors used for a decision on your GA residency after your first year. They will look to see if you did the following: Register your car in GA, get a GA drivers license, set up a bank account in GA, seek summer employment in GA (although this is probably the least important of them all) and you will show how you are not receiving more than 49% of your total cost of attendance from any person(s) who are not GA residents(this is the most important factor). That means you will have to show you or some other GA resident is paying more than half of your cost of attendance either through loans, scholarships, or funds from a bank account with your or the other GA resident's name on it. If you have parents or a significant other who is helping your pay for things the easiest thing to do would just be take out a the max Federal Subsidized loan for your first year and then a good chuck of the max of the unsubsidized loan in your name, and then after you are declared a resident after the first year you can have your parents or whomever pay off that loan. You don't accrue any interest on the subsidized loan until 6 months after graduation but you will accrue a small bit of interest on the unsubsidized loan but it's nothing compared to the cost you will save through becoming a resident after the first year.

Congrats to all the future Law Dawgs. I'm a 2L and a Dean's Ambassador so if any of you have questions about anything law school related feel free to PM me and I'll give you the most honest and accurate answer possible.

for the people who HAVE been accepted, when were you complete?

I've been complete since beginning of December and haven't heard anything yet ... but then again, it's "only" been 10 weeks.

Via status checker. Stats, for those interested, are 3.4, 163, in-state.

Well, that doesn't bode well for me. 3.1, 164, in-state. I STILL haven't been held yet though.

Is there anything beyond "Your application is being reviewed by the Admissions Committee," or when you get a decision does your "status check" just change to, say, "You have been accepted/WL'ed/rejected"?

Did you write a Why UGA? If not, that would be the perfect place to nonchalantly bring it up. If you already have, then I have no idea. Like any other soft it isn't going to be huge but I can't imagine it would hurt......

What does "held for further review" mean? The admission committee was reviewing my app forever but it changed to "held for..." today? I want to go here soooo bad. Does anyone know if I can infer anything from the change? Thanks =)

I re-read the application. It says immediate family. Do cousins/aunts count?

Well my dad went to Georgia Tech so that surely hurts me a lot more than it helps me! haha. My aunt is a big baller in Atlanta though. I didnt write a why UGA though so I think I'll call and see if they will accept one from me.. I actually have a LOT to say and didn't know it was an option really.

How so? I'll be an alum, with average numbers, and they accepted me soon after the snowstorm and gave me a 5k a year deal in addition to the instate tuition I'd be paying. Makes for a pretty good deal.

So I guess theyve started the 163 stack. By the news on this thread and LSN, I'm beginning to think they have no more love for us.

Yep. Looks like a round of dings went out last night, and I bet the rest of us might get to ride the waitlist.
