What do you like/dislike about Ga tech.

Great engineering, science, etc. programs. It's in Atlanta. That's something as well. I've a friend who started there in June and is having a great time. If you're a girl, hey, it's something like 70% male. Heh.

When I inquired about GaTech, all I was told was to look at the retention rate.... very low supposedly.

what about the surrounding area and campus, i've heard lots of bad stuff about it! anyone?

When i visited, i found 3 reasons not to go there.
1) 70% male. enough said.
2) When asked whether they liked it or not, every student hesitated before saying that they liked it (though they all said they liked it)
distance from my home and horror stories from a website dedicated to horror stories about Ga tech also affected my decision.
Ther were some things i liked too - it is the best in aerospace eng., i liked the location and the campus (to answer that last question, 007), and it won bball.

70% male isn't a bad thing when you're female!

My son was accepted to GaTech this year, but elected to go to U of Florida instead. The engineering program at Tech is very good, for sure...but the overall quality of life seems to leave a little to be desired. In my professional life, I do not really feel that Tech produces "better" engineers than a number of other schools...including U of F. But if it's a a good match for the personality of a particular student, then it would be a fine choice.

you should visit studentsreview.com - GaTech has more than 120 comments from students - 50% say they wish they'd gone somewhere else - also princeton review always (this week again) ranks GT in the top 20 for lousy professors and "least happy students" - which may explain why US News yesterday dropped GT's rank from 37 to 41 for 2005. That said 50% seem to like GaTech fine - but you should know what you are getting in to before you go.

the 70% male thing will scare me from going there, but my bro goes there and he's happy, but he's in a frat so he gets hooked up to parties and stuff. Since i'm not into frats though, I prob won't go there.
Still if you're looking for a engineering school tech still rules. Their international relations school has risen in prestige in the past few years as well.

Exactly where has the international relations school risen in prestige? In Georgia? Please. No one in his/her right mind would pick GaTech if they wanted a competitive or prestigious degree in international relations.
