Note: None of the articles mentioned the exact applicant count for EA+RD, (e.g. the AJC said "just under 19,000," so we used 18,800.

2013 Stats:
March 2013: http://ugaadmissions.blogspot.com/2013/03/a-first-look-at-2013-admitted-freshmen.html

2013 profile: https://www.admissions.uga.edu/article/first-year-class-profile.html
Note: An old AJC article (now a dead link) cited the total applicants and admittees as 11,107 and 20,644 versus "almost 11000" and "21,000" via the UGA admissions blog. Since that link is dead we'll default to the UGA Admissions Blog.

Note: For 2016, the New SAT middle 50% for Early Action admits was 1300-1430, but since the rest of the data table is on the old format, we left that out to avoid confusion.

Early Action Counts: https://ugaadmissions.blogspot.com/2017/10/2018-early-action-update.html
Early Action Admits: http://news.uga.edu/releases/article/early-action-2017/ and http://www.uga.edu/about_uga/profile/the-class-of-2022-begins/ (UGA press release 11/17/17)

Miscellaneous Notes: 
1) Exact number of EA admits for 2013-2015 aren't available since the press releases each year were virtually identical, changing only this wording: 
A) Nov. 2013 Early Admits -- "Some 7,500" 
B) Nov. 2014 Early Admits -- "Almost 7500" 
C) Nov. 2015 Early Admits -- "More than 7500" 
D) Nov. 2016 Early Admits -- 8,059
2) In the data table, when a range is shown, it implies "mid-50 percent" or 25th-75th percentile, meaning that 25% are below that bottom number and 25% above the top number.
3) Early Action denials usually hover between 4% and 7%. They're usually omitted in the press releases, but can be imputed from the other released statistics.
4) Sometimes press releases, blog posts, and AJC articles have slightly different numbers, in which case we usually defaulted to the Admissions Blog. Some of the links with data on the older admissions cycles are now dead links but the active ones are all linked on this page.
