The Status Checker

If you register on the UGA website, you should be able to check your status before you get any information from the law school.


Application Information

UGA began accepting applications on September 22.

UGA began notifying some candidates of decisions (via the status checker) on November 14.

Applications on LawSchoolNumbers:

Good luck all!

On the status checker, my application just went from being listed as complete and ready for review to:

Quote:
Your application is being reviewed by the Admissions Committee.


Exciting! It's great they've started already - although I've read here an application can be under review for many weeks.

Any other UGA applicants out there? This thread gives me a lonely feeling.

I'd apply if they'd give me a dang fee waiver. I emailed and asked, but heard nothing in return.

My numbers should at least put me under consideration (3.23/165), but maybe they don't do fee waivers? I retook the LSAT on Saturday and feel pretty good about it, so maybe they'll send one out if my score improves significantly.

We'll see, I guess.

They do them - I got one in the mail quite a while ago. Are you a Georgia resident? I have a suspicion that makes a difference.

I'm not. My partner's family lives in Atlanta, though, so we were considering GA as a law school option.

Well, you might have to pay $50 to apply, but if you went to UGA you could get the in-state rate for your second and third years.

UGA is on the way up, imho.

I'm another UGA applicant though not taking the LSAT until December and applying right after that. It's really moved up my list lately even though I'm not from GA.

As for fee waivers, I got one at a law school fair I went to here in DC so might be worth calling and asking, or if they are at a fiar in your area stop by and pick one up.

Here's hoping its the same over 165 and in policy it seemed to be last year...

Should have mine in by Friday, and completed sometime next week. Went to UGA for UG, so definitely hoping for good news. Anybody know if UGA's medians went up this year? At 3.01 and 168, seems like changes in the medians are very (almost painfully) relevant.

Good luck all.

According to this thread, the medians are now 165 and 3.6 (LSAT up 1, GPA down 0.1 from the previous year).

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=163250

The UGA website confirms that. I think you're still fairly safe. The LSN graph for the last cycle does make it painfully clear that 165 was the magic number:

http://georgia.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/1011/

There is no way the LSAT median is going up by more than a point this year, and even if it does, you're still two points clear. And they probably have some degree of preference for UGA grads.

I put in my app the first day. I just got the status checker email and registered and I'm under review. Hopefully, I'll be in the first round of admits to come out. Fingers crossed for everyone!

Hey do you have a LSN account? I have basically the same numbers and would like to follow your cycle.

I'm applying here too, but waiting on the Oct LSAT to submit.

I have one, but I'm trying to keep it separate from my TLS identity until my cycle is complete. I've shared it with people that I know fairly well, but I'm not sure about you. I'm not trying to be rude, although I'm sure it's coming off that way. Sorry. /hug

@murray18 I've been under review for a while now too. The early acceptances didn't come until November last year, so I figure I've got at least another 2 weeks to hear. I'm hoping for an early acceptance. That will take a huge weight off. I hate to think of UGA as a safety, because they are a solid school and I would happily attend there if I got in nowhere else. Still an early acceptance there would just make me feel so good.

citykitty- yeah it definitely feels nice to have one under the belt. i got in at FSU a week into my cycle, and it feels like a weight off your shoulders. I got my app in at UGA pretty early as well, but it took a while to go complete... hopefully that wont make for any delays. anyways, good luck!

Maybe you should try calling them or contacting them again. I requested and receieved a fee waiver from UGA at least a month ago. I'm sure they'll get around to it

(3.99/161)

You don't need to wait - Georgia has a different status checker system than other schools. Just go to the link posted at the top of this page and register / create an account. When you enter all your information you should be able to see your status.

3.77/171 here. UGA is my top choice, as it was my undergrad institution. Hoping for money, and suck it Gators!

Hey now, that game hurt.

Buuuut, I am applying to UGA. I will never be a real Bulldog, but I do really like the school and the state in general. So, checking in I guess. Sent 10/20
