UW Madison vs. Georgia Tech
I am currently debating whether I should attend UW Madison or Georgia Tech for undergraduate studies in Computer/Electrical Engineering. Can you please advise me on this decision?
Factors influencing my decisions:
Current Residence - I live in Madison, WI and would be close to family if I went here.
Tuition - Georgia Tech will cost me 27000/yr after scholarships; UW Madison will cost me 7000/yr after scholarships
Campus Visit - I visited Tech and was impressed by the campus, program, classes, labs. I've seen UW Madison a few times but was not equally impressed by their offerings
Co-ops/Internships/Study abroad - Tech seems to offer and encourage Co-op, internships and study abroad more than Madison
Education difficulty - Everyone says that doing well at Tech is hard. GPAs are low and 4 yr graduation rates are low.
My post undergrad plans - I want to pursue a masters degree in a similar field and want to be prepared well for that level of education with my undergrad degree.
What college would you suggest? Thanks!
