Journalism Schools and Students They Turn Away

Dr. John Soloski, dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at University of Georgia, said that getting into UGA continues to be more and more difficult.

Then he said the Grady College is “almost impossible” to get into. He said they turn away about 40 percent of the students who apply. Of course, in a meritocracy that is the way it is suppose to be.

So what happens to the 40 percent who get turned away? Are they recruits for the new citizen journalism, we media movement; could someone provide them an alternative media education?

Soloski made his comments earlier today at the Go Mobile or Go Home conference at UGA.
