From the CC Community on Georgia Tech:

“I think you would be surprised how many in-state engineers choose UGA over Tech, having gotten in both. Free tuition makes the ROI hard to beat and GT is not a good fit for some (smaller school, big city, nerd vibe). I have seen it happen several times over the past 3 years with people we know and my GT son has worked with UGA engineers as interns in both of his internships.”
