The Class of 2025 Joins the Medical Partnership
The Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership recently welcomed 60 new Medical College of Georgia students to the Athens campus. The Class of 2025 is the first class of 60 to begin as part of the Medical Partnership’s expansion plans.
The Class of 2025 represents a wide variety of faces and backgrounds. The group is split perfectly with 30 females and 30 males. All 60 of the students are Georgia residents— 23 come to us from Northeast Georgia, 24 hail from Northwest Georgia, 8 come from Southeast Georgia, and 5 are from Southwest Georgia.
UGA is the most represented college with 18 of the new students holding an undergraduate degree from the university. Emory (6), Georgia Tech (4), Georgia State (3), Kennesaw State (3), Georgia Southern (2), and the University of North Georgia (2) were the other top represented Georgia institutions. Fourteen in the class got their education out of the 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 2025’s hobbies are just as unique as their backgrounds: they enjoy hiking, cooking, baking, traveling, reading, and playing sports.
The overall MCG 2025 class is just as diverse as the Medical Partnership campus—with over 3,400 applications, only 260 were admitted. There are 110 males and 149 females, and they come from 49 different colleges and universities. The overall GPA of the class is 3.8 with an average MCAT score of 513.
These distinguished and diverse students exemplify the future of healthcare in Georgia, and they are ready to face the upcoming challenges of medical school. The Class of 2025 had their first day of classes on August 2, and we at the Medical Partnership ardently anticipate what they will accomplish during their first year at the Athens campus.
