Your source to discuss and learn about education in Georgia and the nation and share opinions and news with Maureen Downey

If your child applied early to University of Georgia, watch this video. Decisions due Friday.

If your children or students want to attend the University of Georgia, share this interview I did with David Graves, UGA's senior associate director of admissions and author of the popular admissions blog.

Our talented video folks turned the interview into three 8 to 12 minute segments that I will share today, tomorrow and Wednesday.

I asked Graves about the chances of the current crop of seniors seeking admission. I also asked him how high school juniors, sophomores and freshmen can increase their chances of getting into UGA.

Early action seniors -- there were 15,600 applicants in that pool this year -- will find out Friday whether they were admitted. Graves talks about the options for those who were deferred to regular admission.

Graves offers some guidance for seniors applying regular decision as well -- those applications are due January 15.
