The reason a degree from GT is so valued is not because of the quality of the school or the education, its because of the students who are capable of undergoing the extreme rigor and making it to the other side alive and sane. Make no mistake, GT IS HARD. The professors are (mostly) terrible; many do not speak English very well, and those that do, are usually not very good at teaching. This is mainly due to the fact that GT is a research university, and as a result, the professors are hired to do research, and usually have no skills whatsoever in teaching a class. The students themselves are the life of the school; unfortunately, that's not saying much, considering that most students are very introverted and socially awkward. And don't expect to find any women at GT. The famous ratio hovers around 2 males to each female. This normally wouldn't be too terrible were it not for the fact that most GT women are butt-ugly. The few attractive ones hide in their sorority houses and come out once in a blue moon. And for my minority folks, don't get drawn in by GT's ranking of having the highest graduation rate for African Americans and Latinos. You won't get much support from the faculty. At least, not yet. Our new President, Bud Peterson, is doing big things with regards to diversity at GT. I expect things to get much better in the coming years with the new initiatives he's pushing.

So that's my rant. Go to GT if you want a degree that actually means something (also, the study abroad program is phenomenal). However, if you want a true college experience, look elsewhere.
