The best part of Georgia Tech is the ability to transfer. If you are not ready/mature enough to endure many long nights of hard work and study (all nighters on the reg), then do not come here immediately. I was one of the best mathematical/science students at my high school and I dropped out my first semester because of the lack of social life ,dweebs in my dormitory, and RIDICULOUS amount of core class work. The first two years are the worst with all the core classes that are essentially meaningless in my opinion. The final two years are the best because you are typically in the same classes with the same period from semester to semester and the subjects are much more interesting. There are many options in Georgia that provide transfer programs where you can get rid of about 60% (core classes) of your intended degree elsewhere. I would recommend going to UGA first then transferring after 2-2.5 years or Georgia Southern if that is the case because I know that UGA has strange selectivity. I got rejected from UGA haha. Don't get adapted to that party life style but use it as a way to burn yourself out of partying and a way to make yourself think its time to get serious with my life. Also, don't let people discourage you for attending a second rate school because deep down you know your goal will be to get that tech degree then you can berate them as much as you want for having a "high school" degree. Also, you will have that social balance that you desired. After about 2 years at Georgia Southern I transferred back and now currently have a 3.41 GPA heading into my last semester at GT. The only thing I regret is missing that first semester as I could be closer to being done with Tech. However, no regrets as my GPA is wonderful by Tech standards and most of my friends coming back from UGA/Vanderbilt/GA. Southern/Northwestern/UVA have nothing to look forward to in terms of the job market. Liberal art undergrad degrees don't get you shit anymore and are the equivalent of high school degrees. Just keep in mind that you dont have to go four to five years at Georgia Tech to earn that coveted engineering degree. Go somewhere else. Enjoy yourself. THEN go to tech. My advisor even told me to do this as I was dropping out of my first semester. I just wish I knew this earlier. Also, you are about 21 by the time you get back and get to ACTUALLY enjoy Atlanta for what it is worth. Just dont get caught in Home Park late at night. You might get robbed.
