People who will do well here are those interested in putting in a quite bit of effort over the course of their time in college. Don't let that deter you, though.

This is particularly true if you live in Georgia and have received the HOPE scholarship.

Only dedicated, hard-working individuals should choose Georgia Tech. There is a lot of wok, so if a student wants to do well in school, be able to join a few clubs and organizations around campus, and still have time to share with friends and family, he or she must be really wise about time-management and organization. Don't expect to get by in this school if you did so in high school.

Tech is definitely a school to consider if you have a passion for science and learning, but I feel that the most important quality a prospective Tech student should posses transcends intelligence. It is tenacity. Tech is a very challenging school where you will be constantly pushed to surpass your intellectual and creative bounds, but it is unbelievably rewarding for those who are able to take hold of opportunities and run with them.

John

The students who attend Georgia Tech are not afraid to take on a heavy work load, because they consider learning to be a privilege rather than a chore. Even though Tech is famous for catering to engineers and computer scientists, there are other degrees that are offered as well, thereby allowing a broader range of students to attend.

Amanda

Georgia Tech is designed to prepare an engineer for a challenging but rewarding career in the field. To succeed at Georgia Tech, a person must be driven, well-balanced, and ready to face a challenge. I believe that having an innately competitive nature can have a significant impact on the ultimate success of a prospective student. Socially speaking, an outgoing student would be more successful at Georgia Tech. Most students in the student body are overly reclusive in social situations. An outgoing person would help counteract the barrier.

It is also important to be an open-minded person; there are a large number of international students and students that come from all walks of life, so it is beneficial to be accepting and understanding. As long as the student is willing to accept the Georgia Tech community, he/she will be accepted back.

Josh

The person who is not afraid to show off how smart he/she is, and who is capable of backing up the statement. This person cannot be afraid to work nor can he fall behind, but must remember that there's more to life than just grades, studying, and a GPA. Of course, know when to work and know when to play, and know that independence comes with heavy responsibilities. Someone who understands this should attend Georgia Tech, and will succeed with these words in mind.

A school spirited and curious individual ready to be submerged into new knowledge is the perfect match for such a respected school.

Jonathon

Technically and mathematically savvy individuals who work hard and stay focused on their goals are well suited for Georgia Tech. A positive attitude toward learning is important because most students don't "succeed" in many of the tasks that are laid out for them, but rather solve enough of a given problem to learn from the process. It is also important that students are willing to seek the help available on campus if they are struggling in a particular subject. People who enjoy exploring various approaches solving to a problem will likely find Georgia Tech's carriculum agreeable.

Classes are in general difficult, but interesting, so if someone does not mind doing the large work load associated with classes, he or she will enjoy learning about fascinating topics that people will not learn in most other colleges. People who attend Georgia Tech feel accomplished after passing hard classes and spending time getting to know other people who like science and technology as well. People who enjoy extra-curricular activities should come.

Paul

Georgia Tech is very unique in the fact that, although it puts students through the rigor of a stressful and somewhat frustrating curriculum, it still maintains a strong sense of school spirit. Students do sulk about the work they must complete but, in the end, they embrace the history and tradition of excellence. For that reason, a student that has had a history of great academic performance and work ethic, will find it easy to fit in with the students here as working hard comes natural to us and is a critical part of the school spirit.
