The Georgia Tech Class of 2022 Early Action statistics are out and we’ve got them for our readers. In all, 18,124 students submitted Early Action applications to the Georgia Institute of Technology. Of these students, 4,677 earned admission and some of these students got to find out a day earlier than the rest of applicants — when admissions officers hand-delivered their acceptances to their Georgia-based high school. Georgia Tech showed their love for some of their home state’s high schools. Early Action applications to Georgia Tech were up from last year by a margin of 16%. For Early Action applicants to Georgia Tech’s Class of 2022, 26% earned admission. And if you’re wondering if students from Georgia have better odds than do their peers who don’t call Georgia home, you bet they do. 46% of Georgia students earned admission compared to 19% of out-of-staters. The difference is striking indeed.

Regular Decision applications are up to the Georgia Institute of Technology from last year as well — by a margin of 13%. More than 35,600 students have applied to Georgia Tech this year, which includes the Early Action and Regular Decision pools. This figure marks an all-time application record for the university. These applicants hail from all 50 nifty United States and from 137 countries. If Georgia Tech’s love for its home-staters wasn’t clear already based on their Early Action admit rate for in-staters and their personal visits to area high schools to deliver acceptances, Georgia Tech also shares with the world that applicants hail from 121 counties in Georgia. Who knew there were so many counties in Georgia?

As reports Laura Diamond in a Georgia Tech press release, “The middle 50 percent range of SAT scores was 1390-1530 out of 1600. The middle 50 percent range of the composite ACT score was 32-35 out of 36. Beyond strong academics, the admitted students have impacted their schools, communities and families, [Rick Clark, Director of Undergraduate Admission] said. They’re mentors, tutors, fencers, team captains, Eagle Scouts, student body presidents and robotics champions. They range from entrepreneurs to environmentalists, from dancers to pilots and from bee keepers to app developers. Interestingly, 47 percent of the admitted students are non-engineering majors. ’When we look at the Class of 2022, we’re excited about the character, background, insights, passion and the dynamic personalities they will add to our campus,’ Clark said.” We love it when the bee keepers get cited! As our regular readers know all too well, we are all about the weird at Ivy Coach. We’re all about the bee keepers — as we’ve previously specifically articulated when writing about Johns Hopkins University’s Class of 2022.

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Georgia Tech this Early Action cycle! And good luck to all applicants in the Regular Decision round.
