GT has no job for you after graduation. Surrounding manufacturing is non existent. Only computer science grads do well.

I liked that even though you are in the middle of Atlanta you can't really hear the traffic at night.

My experience at Georgia Tech has been a mixed one, if I'm being quite honest. I've spent countless nights studying while on the brink of tears--fearing the exam I would have to take in a few hours. Georgia Tech undoubtedly has one of the hardest, most challenging course-loads for a public institution in America. Although the students find themselves constantly stressed and complaining about their classes, I think it's safe to say that we all believe that Tech is making us prepared to face the "real world" after graduation. I am currently a rising junior, and I have to say that I love this school. Coming here, I learned how to properly study, how to write publishable research papers, how to pick and choose the right friends, and simply, how to grow up. Georgia Tech has truly changed me for the better, and although I will still continue to complain about this school, I know that it has impacted my life in the best way possible.
