I did nothingNov 23 2014Other
I did nothing. I had VA benefits, so there was no stress to get in. I also don't think, outside of the technical fields, there were that much trouble getting into this school.

I got good ACT grades, did fairly well inAug 26 2013Electrical Engineering
I got good ACT grades, did fairly well in high school. I applied very late and still got into the school. Get your finances in line, and remember to do the standard financial aid stuff every year and you'll be fine.
ACT: 29 Male
Too easyAug 17 2013Other
Too easy. A 10 yr old can get in but the courses are ridiculously hard so staying in is hard. Look up graduation rate and retention rates

Not much, I just failed out of GA TechMar 04 2013Civil Engineering
not much, I just failed out of GA Tech so I came here. I couldn't afford any other school. My experience in the Civil Engineering Technology department has been amazing and I wouldn't change it for the world, its everything outside of my department building that sucks.
