2014 Entering Freshman Class

2014 Entering Freshman Class 


The Georgia Tech entering freshman class in 2014 is extremely academically talented. In the data and graphics below that will be apparent.

However, we are also incredibly proud of what these numbers cannot fully demonstrate: this group is also filled with future innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Each year it is our goal to enroll a class that will be committed to Georgia Tech's mission of "improving the human condition." The individuals who compose this year's class exemplify that spirit, and we believe their collective skills, talents, passions, and motivation will help to sharpen and build one another to create a truly special and unique class.

Whether folks thought it was cheesy or not, I don't think there is any question that the video gone viral of "We Can Do That" opened a lot of eyes to young people who may not have already been considering GT.

I think the jump in applications has something to do with GT joining some common application standard where kids fill out one online application that can be used for many schools.

Would still like to get the percentage of counties in GA higher than 54%.

The Race/Ethnicity chart is bugging me.  Only percentage to scale is the Caucasian 51%.  Chart makes it appear we are more diverse that we truly are.  Chart fudging bugs me no matter what we're talking about.

Have fun with it.  If you turn the chart a quarter counter-clockwise, it appears as if Ma Tech is giving you the middle finger.

These were the kind of thoughts that kept me out of a really good school like UNLV and had to settle for the NATS.

Lord, I'm glad I applied in the 90's; I doubt I could get in today.

I really don't think it is worth it BUT you can keep this on your phone incase you hear any dawgies crowing that UGA is harder to get into Tech.

I just ignore them because they wouldn't understand the numbers anyway.  tongue

Here is a link to UGA's profile from 2013 (can't have changed a ton)

The University of Georgia :: Undergraduate Admissions :: First Year Class Profile

Roughly, their 75% student is equivalent to our 25% student.  Their honors admit is roughly equivalent to our regular admit.

Is the Tech data that of the admitted students or the students that actually enrolled........

It isn't clear to me.

The dwag numbers are supposedly the actual enrolled.

I'd like to know if those numbers are actual enrollees.

If so, 1300+ high schools for about 2800 students is amazing.  The chances of you enrolling with a classmate, even in-state is surprisingly low, it would seem.

My guess is that these stats are for the enrolled 2014 class.

Well, I would think that most out-of-state students are the only one from their HS to attend Tech (in a given year)

From within Georgia, that is still likely true for smaller schools & south Georgia schools (some overlap).  Then I would assume there are a few super schools (from Cobb, Gwinnett, North Fulton, etc) that send a lot of students.

I guess what I'm saying, it is easy to believe that 1000 schools send a 1000 students, then the other 1800 come from 300 schools.  At least makes sense from a back of the envelop calculation.

That would make sense to me.  Just seems like we'd have some pretty strong showings from some of the larger GA schools, but made me wonder if you'd see 10-20 kids from a single school in a given year.

Brookwood had about 30 kids my freshman year (1997).  My high school (Norcross) had around 10, I think.  Maybe a few more.

Brookwood is one of the biggest schools in Georgia and given the new requirements might not send 30 kids a year now.  

BTW, I still believe there are 10-15 schools like Brookwood that do send 20 or so kids a year to Tech a year.

I agree.  Good points.  It always amuses me whenever I encounter UGA people who want to talk about UGA's anemic academic prowess.  It is just silly.  I don't argue with them.  Good students should know better, unless they are mislead by their high school teachers.

I'd like to see a Georgia map and which are the 72 counties that have no students coming to Tech.
