Undergraduate Admission Delivers Over 31,800 Decisions to Early Action 2 Applicants

Admitted students join those accepted in December during Early Action 1, an application pool reserved for Georgia students.

On Friday evening, more than 31,800 students who applied to Georgia Tech in Early Action 2 received their admission decision.  

The overall admission rate for Early Action 2, which encompasses both international and U.S. students residing outside of the state of Georgia, stood at 9%. The 3,000 students admitted in this round represent all 50 states, 78 countries, and 1,800 high schools globally. These students join the 2,688 Early Action 1 admitted students from the state of Georgia who received their decisions in December. 

The Office of Undergraduate Admission received a record number of 31,826 Early Action 2 applications, a 15% increase from last year.  

“The students who apply in Early Action 2 represent over half of our applicant pool this year and have a tremendous depth and breadth of talent and experience,” said Mary Tipton Woolley, interim executive director of Undergraduate Admission. “The volume and quality of applicants in this round are a challenge each year, and the team in Undergraduate Admission has worked incredibly hard to process and review each application.”  

Campus visits and outreach opportunities are already in progress for all admitted students, with additional information available on the campus visits page. 

Students who applied in Regular Decision or were deferred from Early Action 1 or 2 can expect to receive their admission decisions in March.
