The Georgia Institute of Technology is a selective institution, and each year we are unable to admit all students who are qualified to attend. Each application receives a thorough and holistic review by multiple admission staff members. Due to this comprehensive review, it is unusual for us to reverse an admission decision.
For an appeal to have merit it must bring to light new academic or personal information, as well as information pertaining to extenuating circumstances, that had not been present in the application—information that clearly shows the student to be stronger than had been earlier evidenced.
Please read below to better understand what does and does not constitute an appeal. We advise you to consider this information carefully before you decide to submit an appeal.
