RETP (2yrs at GT-approved college then 2+yrs at GT)Aug 21 2007Electrical Engineering
RETP (2yrs at GT-approved college then 2+yrs at GT) is the easiest way to get in. If you don't make the cut for regular admission, you can still get into RETP because the cutoffs are lower.

Also you can get into the GTREP program and avoid the Atlanta campus altogether. GTREP at Georgia Southern in Statesboro is very fun, and getting good grades is easier since you're not competing with the top-notch international students, but its basically impossible to find work since GSU is twice the population of the county, and all the students are looking for jobs.
SAT: 1330 Male

The best way to get into tech is to transfer inAug 21 2007Engineering Department
The best way to get into tech is to transfer in. Get all your physics and math out of the way, keep your GPA around 3.5, and you'll get in. If you want guaranteed transfer to Tech, RETP is the way to go...if you didn't make the cut with your GT app, you can still get into GT-RETP because the admissions requirements are less strict. Or just do GTREP and get your Tech degree and avoid that campus altogether...highly recommended. Georgia Southern University/Statesboro classes are easier, and the campus is way more fun than Atlanta but its very hard to find a job in that area. But don't go to Tech!
SAT: 1330 Male

Apply as some obscure major such as PTFE orJul 27 2007Electrical Engineering
Apply as some obscure major such as PTFE or Mechanical Engineering so that you can get in easier; later once you get in you can change your major to your desired one.

Getting in is REALLY hardJul 23 2007Chemical Engineering
getting in is REALLY hard. before the SAT changed you need at lest 1100 (on slow years) to get in. if you have at that you will need at lest a 3.5 or better in high school.This is also means u come from a highly ranked school system.

I know a gal how was 1/278 in her graduation class. 1120 SAT and soft ball player. She got condisonal accptance.

you will need to look at extra creliculers. Like math team sciance team. the sports program helps very little for getting in.
