What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Georgia Institute of Technology, more commonly referred to as Georgia Tech or simply Tech, is a tremendously challenging school, even for the most intelligent students. As a student, you will be forced to truly prove yourself and your abilities. High test grades that once came so easily in high school are now rarities here, yet receiving one is the biggest reward for your hard work. You will encounter so many interesting and insanely intelligent students. You will hear conversations about hemoglobin and huge science words that are difficult to pronounce while eating dinner at the dining hall. You will meet artists, musicians, athletes, and a huge variety of people. However, no matter how different each person may seem, they all have one thing in common: they are all in the same struggle to graduate with a Georgia Tech degree. That common struggle will comfort you while you are studying at 4 in the morning. Georgia Tech will make you memorize more information than you ever believed your brain could hold. It will make you cry as you look at your transcript after a particularly rough semester. It will make you question how much you truly want your degree. Despite all of this, the Georgia Institute of Technology will make you into a helluva engineer (no matter your major) as well as a strong student with an extremely bright future. The sleepless nights, the frequent stress, and the constant urge to just drop out will all be made worth it when you walk across that stage and get handed your diploma. You can't graduate from one of the top schools in the country without a little (a lot) of hard work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful! The students are diverse, passionate, and intelligent. There are a ton of opportunities to get involved in activities or research, just walk out to Tech/Skiles walkay and your sure to find something. Most if not all professors are excellent and available (there are some duds). Classes are sufficiently challenging, there are free tutoring services everywhere though. I will complain that the art scene is very limited if you are super passionate. There are beginner opportunities but nothing beyond that. This is changing somewhat but I have encountered a (ONE) professor in physics that gave a guest lecture on why the modern humanities was horrible and leeching off the successes of Einstein. Like I said, there are some duds. I am actually working with some people to start a special program for students to cross register at SCAD for art courses, so this should change. NOTE: do not take honors classes (different from honors program classes) unless you have a strong understanding of the material already and two or more semesters of math beyond the prerequisite (at least for my honors physics class). The honors courses are taught like you know this already and it can be frustrating that the prerequisites don't reflect this. Overall, however, I really love this school and have gotten involved but still have time for school. I'm a freshman and I already am working on research. As are plenty of my friends!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Is this college difficult? Very. Am I tired a lot? Definitely. Do I want some coffee? You don't even have to ask. Despite all of the exhaustion, exams, tough professors, and impossible homework, the spirit of Georgia Tech students is incredible. They will support, persevere, and excel, despite everything thrown at them. I will always be proud to be a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a helluva engineer!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Georgia Tech is a profound school for its academics. It challenges it's freshman class of Valedictorians, nerds, and geeks of high school to fail their first class or drop their first class due to the rigorous workload that it's students are challenged with. All those straight A students from high school have an emotional storm when they feel the hopelessness hit them all of a sudden. Although, I wasn't that student to drop a class or fail a class because I was one who was going to fight my way through and give the best I had. All those perfect A’s and never a B in high school suddenly came to an end my first semester at Tech. Well at least for that semester. Students at Georgia tech remember that crying and pain that they felt that first semester and talk amongst one another outraged in disbelief, but positively are motivated and talking to one another in their intelligent conversations about how they will fight to get that grade point average up. Talking about the commitment and planning that they will do in the future, the discipline of cutting back on some of the partying and late night gatherings that they were distracted by as first semester freshmen. Georgia tech has a beautiful campus. A nature scenery of trees, grass, flowers, and mowed lawns. A campus that's not too noisy, a campus where people study, and socialize about their futures. The campus is in one huge city that offers great opportunities after college. A Georgia Tech degree is one of the most profound degrees in the world. Having that on your resume can really set you up for the future with one in six graduates from Georgia tech becoming millionaires. Georgia tech is compared very often to top ivy leagues like Harvard and Yale. I hear many things about Tech like there's always rumors going around that Georgia Tech is slightly more rigorous than Harvard. Overall I think Georgia tech is the best option for me, a self-motivated student wanting to face the greatest challenges in life to become the greatest I can be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the Institute. The class load is extremely hard and the classes are not easy. Some of the core class professors suck but once you get into major specific classes the professors are great. This school works hard and plays hard. We love our Yellow Jackets and have a healthy amount of hate for the University of Georgia. Greek life is big if you want it to be but not the entire campus atmosphere if you're not interested in it. Overall, I love this place!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgia Tech is definitely not for the faint of heart. From the heavy workload to group projects, there's always something to be done at Tech. Setting aside the actual work though, Tech offers many extracurricular activities. Thinking about joining a club? There's a 100% chance it already exists. Tech offers over three hundred clubs that range from archery to video game enthusiasts. There's no shortage of diversity on Tech's campus, and that's what makes it so unique. You make friends from all around the world. The many opportunities that Tech offers as well makes it a great college to attend. Whether it's studying abroad or meeting employers every other day on campus, it almost makes it impossible not to get an internship or job. I think the highlight of Tech is the support that is offered for students who are struggling. There are many workshops one can attend and resources available. The spirit of Tech is beyond the norm and one of the many reasons why Tech is such a great place to attend. It's not just the academics that makes Tech amazing, it's the heart of the all the students and faculty put together that make Tech the unique place it is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tech is a good school where you'll work hard and feel stressed constantly but with a big payoff in the end. The friends you meet will be vital to your success and will leave you with strong connections later on in life. You are almost guaranteed a good job when you graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Georgia Tech is a nice blend of students both very academically focused but also focused on a variety of extracurriculars to become more well-rounded individuals. The architecture program has a variety to students from very different backgrounds that are all passionate about architecture, design, sustainability, and construction. It's a challenging program that teaches you so much about architecture, research, and communication skills for the future. I would highly recommend this program.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice environment. Everybody is really kind and they all seem extremely smart. About the services and installation I have no complain. They give the students all of the resources needed to succeed. The only thing I would say they need to improve is the food variety offered at the food court. Overall I'm a happy GaTech student :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the best public colleges in the nation, and I believe that attending this college will give me a huge advantage in the job field. Also, for my major, Georgia Tech is the best college, so I am very happy about my decision to attend this college. I recommend any student from anywhere in the world to apply to Georgia Tech, one of the best engineering schools in the United States.
