Date: May 13 2009 Major: Chemical Engineering (This Major's Salary over time) Georgia Tech is an excellent school - don't get me wrong, it's tough. Really tough (and this comes from someone that's attended 4 different Top 10 Engineering Schools), but it's rewarding. I had 18 offers at graduation from many different industries and all across the country - many of my friends at other colleges were happy with 2 or 3 and had no say in where they worked after graduation (they were forced to move to their job, whereas I could choose a city). As a hiring manager later in life, I saw heavy favoritism towards Tech in the work force, and a substantial ($10,000+) advantage to top Tech grads over grads from other schools.But that is only if you're a good student (I had a mid-3 GPA). Mediocre students with no work ethic drop out of Tech or barely graduate all the time, which is why you see the negative reviews. Tech will not "hand hold" a student - if you don't put in the effort, it'll run over you like a Mack truck. This seems to be a problem for many students that expect a 4.0 GPA for just waking up in the morning.All-in-all, you Tech gives you more opportunity than nearly all other universities. I would highly recommend it to someone will to work and put in effort. If you goal is to coast, try a lower ranked school (Texas A&M, Penn State, Virginia Tech, etc).
