It was a record Early Action cycle for the Georgia Institute of Technology this year. In fact, Early Action applications to Georgia Tech were up 12% over last year. In all, 20,289 students applied Early Action to Georgia Tech’s Class of 2023. Of these students, 4,000 earned admission, marking an Early Action admission rate of 19.7%. For applicants applying from within the state of Georgia (in-state residents tend to apply Early to the institution), the admission rate stood at 39.6%. So is there an advantage for Georgia residents applying to Georgia Tech? You can say so!
Between the Early Action and Regular Decision rounds, Georgia Tech received a total of about 37,000 applications, marking an increase of approximately 4% over last year’s figure. Applications from women were up about 5% this year, while first-generation applications, students whose parents did not attend college, were up about 8%.
Georgia Tech’s Efforts to Recruit Georgia’s First-Generation Students
Georgia Tech is especially proud of its efforts to recruit in-state students who will be the first in their families to attend college, even if they didn’t earn admission in the Early Action round. As reports Maureen Downy for “AJC” in a piece entitled “Four thousand students got into Georgia Tech today,” “This year, the Institute is offering a new way for first-generation, in-state students to come to Tech through its Georgia First Pathway Program. The program is for first-year applicants who are Georgia residents and whose parents have not completed a bachelor’s degree. This program becomes the sixth pathway option for students who may not be admitted initially but want to pursue transferring to Georgia Tech.”
Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Georgia Tech this fall! Georgia Tech’s Regular Decision notifications will be released on March 9, 2019.
