Although you may think Georgia Tech is for nerds/geeks, we still have fun! ...at study group? haha...
It is definitely a school for people who are serious about their academics. Students usually study 15+ hours a week. It is hard but worth it.
Outside of academics, I think we have great extracurriculars. I am in a cultural organization where we educate other students about Asian American culture and traditions. There are many clubs that you could join! I would not say we are heavy on sports; our football team is not that great.
We are located in Atlanta, so there will always be great places to eat and have fun on the weekends.
Overall, I love my school and would always encourage anyone who got in to attend.
Georgia Tech is a rigorous school with a heavy academic workload. It is an excellent school for STEM majors, but not so much for liberal art programs. I graduated from this school in 2012 and I feel that my degree paid off by opening doors for me and presenting me with opportunities. I would recommend this school to anyone willing to put in the work and effort.
While Georgia Tech is a very academically rigorous school that fosters bright futures for its students, there is some room for improvement in the food and dorm department. Some have been renovated recently, while others still have the same look from decades ago. As a result, many people only want about two dorms since the dropoff between those and the others is pretty noticable.
Georgia Tech pushes you extremely hard, and you either emerge from the flames sad and broken or sad and a helluva lot stronger. While this school may not be the cause of my alcoholism, its definitely a major reason why I drink so much. If you like a challenge, absolutely this school is the one for you. If you are hesitant and not sure if grinding is what you really want to do, this school will break you.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus is 25%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I suppose the best piece of advice I could give myself as a high school senior is not to assume that my grades will remain at the same level I maintained during high school. It is difficult to go from making A's and B's to making B's and C's, but that's the way it goes at this school. My high school may have been academically rigorous, but college is simply a different matter entirely. It is easy to be discouraged when first facing a drop in your grades, but it is important to remember that everyone is in the same boat as you are, and that things will get better as you adapt to your new surroundings.
They are extremely intelligent. The campus has a high deiversity percentage, but the gender percentage favors males. Almost all the student here are engineering majors, but there are also some in other science, as well as liberal arts and management. Students here are always hard at work and try their hardest in every class. They feel challenged.
I think that fact that almost everything is revolved around engineering is a limiting factor.
The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the highest establishments of learning available in the modern world, pulling off of hundreds of cultures to create a rich blend of innovation and research in an environment that promotes the growth and development of not only the worlds greatest scientists and engineers, but also prepares generations of intelligent thinkers to develop new and innovative ways to facilitate the growing demands of a world dominated by technology as well as the attachments to the recourses necessary for the furtherment of the modern civilizations found in both the western and the eastern hemispheres.
Georgia Tech is home to a variety of backgrounds, interests, and races, making it an extremely diverse campus with opportunities to understand different perspectives. Additionally, the campus is in the middle of Atlanta while still maintaining a relatively closed campus feel, which allows its students to both enjoy the beauty of the city while ignoring the busy, crowded portions.
The best thing about Georgia Tech is its professional atmosphere and its ability to prepare students for their future careers.
If a person doesn't want to work hard or study something in the engineering, science, or business fields, Georgia Tech is probably not for them. There is a heavy focus on these fields.
Georgia Tech academics are extremely demanding, but demanding academics are the only way to maintain the value of your diploma/degree. Most core classes are very large therefore the professor seldom know students on a personal basis. Students are continually studying in order to keep up with the fast paced teaching style that is prevalent at Georgia Tech. I myself am an Environmental Engineering major in the College of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
For starters it would have helped to know how hard the school was going to be. Coming from a small high school that wasn't geared towards engineering made it tough my first semester. It was a large learning curve. But I can confidently say that I have got it now. I also wish I had known about the classes that are extremely tough such as Physics. Then I would have taken Physics C in HS and exempted that requirement with the AP tests. I also wish I had known some computing language coming in. It would have done wonders.
My school has too many things to brag about. In a recent study, it was found that Georgia Tech was the number one school for Return-on-Investment. This means that after all of the hard work at such a competitive university, it does pay off to have a degree from Georgia Tech. I also brag about our football team, greek life, and other student activities that are rare among other schools that succeed to Tech's level of academics.
It is somewhat true. The sex ratio is around 7/3 male, but this is slowly evening out. A Tech student does have to study a lot but there is time to have a social life.
Guys are geeky and there are few girls.
Someone who is extremely focused and driven. A person who knows what they want to do, something engineering/science related, who has a strong work ethic and doesn't require a large social network.
Georgia Tech as a whole has a great reputation and a degree from Georgia Tech is highly respected. The greek system at Georgia Tech is another great part of tech. Tech's central location in Atlanta allows students many opportunities to attend major events that take place in the city. The campus is a good size, but walking to classes is still manageable. The only bad thing about Georgia Tech is the fact that the administration seems to be more focused on their research than their students.
While the people here are nice, most are introverted; therefore, it is hard sometimes to carry on a conversation with those who are introverted. In addition, I wish that clubs of interest would promote their meetings/events better. While sending emails sort of helps, sometimes a visual cue around campus could jog my memory of when a meeting is better than searching throughout my email for the information.
There are many campus organizations. Freshman Council, FAB, and FreshGA are the main freshman groups. The Greek organization is very good, and one of the only ways to have a social life. The athletics are good. Football games are fun. It is free to go to go to sporting events.
Rigouous academic atmosphere.
Georgia Tech is commonly stereotyped as a school for geeks and nerds and there is a large kernel of truth behind this. Our students are doing their best and their best helps solve national problems. But we are not only about studying. We also know how to relax, serve the community and enjoy good friendships.
