Don't listen to any of the negative reviews

Jul 16 2010Agriculture/Horticulture
Don't listen to any of the negative reviews. These were written by people who are upset at the fact that they can't get into this college.

This is an amazing college, anyone who says differently is a complete moron.The most dangerous college in the Virginia is Norfolk State and the second is Old Dominion. You'll find used condoms and syringes on campus.

Ignore all the negative reviews

Ignore all the negative reviews. Especially the ones that mention the violence and how bad the student body is. I've been to other colleges and there are weirdos and sketchy people there as well.

Tech is not a dangerous school, it's quite safe. Just do a little research and you'll find that there are other schools that are far more dangerous than here. I walk around at night and still feel safe.Tech is considered a better school that William and Mary. That should tell you something.

If you're a science and engineering major come

Jul 13 2010Computer Engineering
If you're a science and engineering major come here. I know people who transferred from other colleges like UVA and they like tech more than UVA.

As previous posts have written, what type of experience you want and depending on your major should determine the college you go to.

All big colleges have big and small classes. All colleges have teachers who don't speak English to well. It's that way even at West Virginia University and that area isn't as diverse as here. The community colleges have foreign teachers as well.Va Tech high school requirements are very close to UVA's requirements. I know people who got rejected from Tech and got into UVA. That has to do with how many people are applying to Tech. It's easier to get into tech if you get an associates. For their Life sciences department it's 3.0 for every other department it's 3.4 and UVA is a 3.4 transfer requirement.
