Personally I probably picked the easiest major at Georgia Tech, and I get quite a few weird looks, though not as many as I'd expect. I'm not super knowledgeable about other student's experiences but I'll give some advice based on my own.
  • If you were the type of kid who didn't need to study in high school and you got straight A's, you probably need to study here. Read the book over, write down main ideas on flashcards, it sounds silly but you'll need it.
  • Go to office hours, review sessions, and tutorings, especially if your grade is lower than you like. Some professors might not be much help, but others are usually pretty cool one on one. A lot of kids at tech think they're too smart to go to those things, but they're really important, and it really helps.
  • You're probably not going to make too many friends. A lot of kids at Georgia Tech are a bit socially inept, while others are focused on the work. Maybe talk to the kid you sit by every day in class and hope there's a connection.
  • Some of the core classes unbelievably hard (and probably unnecessary). One fun fact about Georgia Tech is if you go, you have to take a computer science class. Just try and get through it, hopefully major-specific classes won't be that hard.
  • I know most people aren't psych majors, but if you're reading this and you are, you'll probably do well if you're passionate enough, and work hard (and do research that's important too).
