UGA is now AVAILABLE on Common App
For all those DAWG lovers out there....The University of Georgia is now accepting applications through The Common Application. Simply go to #APPLYUGA and begin your process or if you have an account via Common Application, go ahead and add UGA to your list of colleges. Just a heads-up the supplemental questions are below:
UGA will require two essays, a longer personal essay (250-650 words) and a shorter essay (200-300 words).
The longer Personal essay will use the Common Application prompts or Coalition Application prompts for 2021. The Common Application prompts for the Personal Essay are listed below:
Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?
Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma-anything that is of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging that it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more?
Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you’ve already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design.
The shorter essay prompt will be the following – “The college admissions process can create anxiety. In an attempt to make it less stressful, please tell us an interesting or amusing story about yourself from your high school years that you have not already shared in your application.”
