Athens, Ga. - The most academically talented class in the history of the University of Georgia School of Law begins the three-year pursuit of a law degree today. The Class of 2012 is comprised of 241 students from 27 states and 90 undergraduate schools. More than half of the students starting this fall scored 164 or higher on the Law School Admission Test, placing these students in the top 10 percent of test takers nationwide. The median undergraduate grade point average of the class is 3.7.

"We have a diverse group of accomplished students beginning this fall," Director of Law Admissions Paul Rollins said. "More than 3,000 applicants sought admission to Georgia Law this fall, making it more competitive then ever to gain admission. We are confident this class will continue the law school's proud tradition of producing future leaders for our state, our region and beyond."

The most represented undergraduate schools in this class are: the University of Georgia (81), Emory University (13), Georgia State University (13), the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (6), the Georgia Institute of Technology (5) and Vanderbilt University (5).
