I've had a great time at GT. Almost done. I see that most of the comments that are negative tend to be whiney "boohoo I didn't cut it crap". GT is not a school to hand hold you. You aren't paying for your degree. Work hard, you'll be fine. It's by no means impossible, and very rarely have I found it to be unfair. I feel like I'm a very average student here, intellectually, but I've never had any stressful breakdowns, failed any classes, etc. Just get your shit done, get involved in something, and take it easy. You probably won't get a 4.0 but you can very easily have a 3.5+ and have a good college experience. Sounds like a good trade to me. I really love my major/school. Lots of brilliant, interesting people. I don't know about other majors but we CS majors like to hang out and help each other in the CoC commons. I generally feel a lot of camaraderie between me and my fellow CS majors. Probably because we're all facing the same challenges. There's definitely a competitive edge that you will feel, because everyone's so smart, but it is always a positive thing because it pushes you to be a better person. Negatives at GT are probably applicable to many schools, including hit and miss professors (though as you stay here longer they just keep getting better. Can you really expect professors to give special snowflake treatment to you when there's 300 people in the class? Thats reserved for when you get to your major classes and it's just you and 30 others.), shitty on campus food, and a smattering of crime (any big city). Guys like to complain about the "lack of girls" but it's really not that big of a deal because you live in ATLANTA which has over (?) three other universities within the perimeter. Also, I recommend doing freshman experience program your first year, just to meet people, and then hightailing it outta there to off campus where the rent is a bogus 900 a month. Oh and co-op. Companies love hiring GT students and we have a great co-op program. It'll give you priceless real world experience. As a CS major getting a job was easy mode.
questionI am thinking of doing my freshman at KSU then transferring to GA Tech.
Is it hard??
