Georgia Tech vs. Maryland for Computer Science
I'm trying to make a final decision for college by the May 1 deadline. I've narrowed it down to Georgia Tech and the University of Maryland for computer science. I'm from out of state at both schools. I don't qualify for any financial aid, but I did get a $12,000 scholarship from Maryland. Money is an important consideration, but my family will be able to pay for either one.
Maryland is much closer to home. Maryland is a 3-hour train ride/drive away, but I would have to take a plane home from Atlanta.
I also feel that Georgia Tech is academically stronger and would provide more opportunities for research and internships.
I've visited both schools, and liked both of their campuses.
I got into the scholar's program at Maryland, but I did not get into the Honors Program at Georgia Tech.
Which one do you think would be better for me?
