Class of 2027 Joins the Medical Partnership

The Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership recently welcomed 60 new Medical College of Georgia (MCG) students to the Athens campus. The Class of 2027 is the third class of 60 to begin as part of the Medical Partnership’s expansion.

The Class of 2027 is split with 32 females and 28 males, and Alpharetta (5), Atlanta (5), Cumming (4), and Duluth (3) are the most represented hometowns.

The University of Georgia is the most represented college with 27 of the new students holding an undergraduate degree from the university. Emory University (8), Georgia Tech (4), and Georgia State University (3) were the other most represented institutions within the state. Only eight members of the class received their undergraduate education out of state.

While keeping up with studies and excelling in the classroom are important, they also know a school-life balance is key. The Class of 2027’s hobbies are just as unique as their backgrounds: they enjoy hiking, cooking, playing board games and video games, traveling, reading, and playing sports.

The entire MCG 2027 class is just as impressive as Athens—with over 3,300 applications, only 264 were admitted. There are 148 females and 115 males, and the overall GPA of the class is 3.8 with an average MCAT score of 511.

The Class of 2027 had their first day of classes on July 31, and we at the Medical Partnership ardently anticipate what they will accomplish during their first year at the Athens campus.
