Because of the quality of education, the requirements toDec 17 2007Mechanical Engineering
Because of the quality of education, the requirements to be accepted at GT are tought.Not having gone to high school in the US, I had to fulfil. I went to Southern Polytechnic State University first where I had to maintain a GPA above 3.7/4.0 after having taken all the math classes, all the physics classes, chemistry, Advanced english, history, computer science.... If you can do that,you have a chance to be considered at GT.

Like many students at Tech, I was one ofDec 16 2007Computer Engineering
Like many students at Tech, I was one of those kids who was smart enough to get the grades to get in, but did not try hard enough in High School to have the marks for places like, say, Cornell, Stanford, Penn, Rice, etc. If you were/are a decent high school student, and did fairly well on ACT/SAT, you should have no problem getting in.
ACT: 33 SAT: 1480 Female
I think it was mostly my SAT score that got me inNov 05 2007Architecture
I think it was mostly my SAT score that got me in. Balanced extracurricular activities and nearly 2 years of working at the time I applied probably helped.
