I was born in Sandusky, Ohio, and have lived there my entire life. I graduated high school three years ago and have been installing Ohio home security systems ever since. However, after qualifying for some student loans and saving up a bit of money, I can finally resume my academic career and pursue that elusive college degree.

I have always had a love for the University of Georgia. I grew up watching Bulldogs football and always had the dream of one day attending the Peach State’s flagship institution. So I have decided to make this dream come true. Here’s what I’ve discovered about what it takes to attend the University of Georgia as an out-of-state student:

When you factor in tuition, fees, food and housing, it cost nearly 40,000 a year for an out-of-state student to attend the University of Georgia (in-state students pay roughly half that amount).
According to 2011 admissions data, UGA accepted 59 percent of its applicants.
oThe average SAT score of admitted applicants was 1254
oThe average high school GPA was 3.83.
oThe average ACT score was 28

While the price of tuition for an out-of-state student is extremely hefty, there are a number of scholarships available to curtail this cost. In fact, according to UGA financial aid data from 2009-10, 93 of new students received some sort of financial aid.
