SAT 1210,Nov 09 2015Electrical Engineering
SAT 1210, In 1979 this school accepted good ole boys like my roommate who was undecided engineering, he should not have been admitted. He had not had calculus, not had trig. He was taking pre trig. He eventually dropped out after trying to sabotage me in many ways and take me with him. He did though, get a high pay computer job because he was good ole boy, without deserving it. I on other hand graduated and received not one interview or job offer. After 10 years of nothing I left Georgia for Ohio where I worked my way into engineering, no thanks to Tech. Tech is a racist hell hole.

I enrolled in a full-time dual-enrollment program, conducted independentNov 12 2014Computer Science
I enrolled in a full-time dual-enrollment program, conducted independent research, and was just a well-rounded candidate. I know high school counselors tell an applicant to be "Well-rounded" if they want to go to a good institution. THIS IS ONLY PARTLY TRUE. If you want to go to an Ivy League school, you can forget it if you're "well-rounded." To go to an Ivy, you need three things:

1. Be valedictorian
2. Be ridiculously good at something (as in so good, you outclass professionals in your field)
3. Have taken the HARDEST COURSES YOU CAN FIND, and GET 100's in all of them.

Obviously, this is a bit impossible. Which is why the valedictorian of my school, the salutatorian of my school, and everyone else who were high up in my class are all attending Tech.
Because as the old song says: "..Don't send my boy to Emory, I'd rather see him dead. But send my boy to Georgia Tech, 'tis better than Cornell. As for the University of georgia, I'D RATHER SEE HIM IN HELL!"
