Major: Computer Science, potentially double majoring with physics, electrical engineering, or math
I'm trying to decide what school to go to, and have it narrowed down to these two.
UT - Got in to the Turing Scholars and Dean's Scholars Honors Programs, which are making UT stand a large step above GA Tech at the moment, but I absolutely hate the state of Texas, its weather, and the climate here.
GA Tech - It's not Texas. It has a wonderful comp sci program and has an unusual but interesting degree program in CS.
With the programs at UT and the feel of GA Tech, both of them would provide a stimulating academic environment.
UT would run me about 18k a year, and I haven't heard back from GA Tech on scholarships/financial aid, but that stuff was mailed out today (April 1st), so we'll see soon.
Anyone have any suggestions or know anything I should consider about these two schools?
