Reasons to attend and to not attend Georgia Institute of Technology

To Attend

  • “It’s a lot of hard work and probably the hardest thing you’ll do. One of my professors who went here told me that while you’re here you’re going to think that everyone else is having more fun than you and that everywhere else is looking much cooler, but if you stick through it, it will prepare you for real life. That’s a big thing that I’ve kept with because no matter how hard it gets, it’s worth it.”
  • “It’s in the heart of Atlanta, so there are lots of opportunities for internships and different stuff happening outside of campus.”
  • “Georgia Tech has an innovative and cutting-edge environment where you’re going to be in touch with what’s happening in modern-day business.”
  • “The faculty want to help you succeed. They’re not doing it just because of their job, they genuinely want you to succeed.”
  • “The diversity on campus. It’s cool to be around people who care about their culture.”

To Not Attend

  • “The academic culture here is if you go to a party, you might find somebody still studying. They will be sitting on a couch with flashcards [laughs]. It’s wild.”
  • “If you can’t handle hard work and failure, that’s a big reason why you shouldn’t come here. I’ve failed so many times and it’s something that you have to get used to and accept that it’ll help you in the long run.”
  • “There is a lot of stress and pressure from each course that you take, so you have to have time management skills and the patience to work on your goals. If you get stressed easily, maybe it’s not for you.”
  • “If you want to party every weekend because most people can’t do that with the workload.”
  • “If you can’t handle the heat and humidity of Atlanta.”
