I have been accepted to the following for Computer Engineering; UTKnoxville, UTAustin, Texas A&M, and GA Tech. I have heard great things about GA tech and that if you get a degree there it will be highly respected in the workforce.
Here’s my challenge. Though I love computer engineering and aspire to be great at the field, my true goal is to get into patent law, thus entering law school immediately after I obtain my B.S. I am shooting high and trying my luck with Stanford and UC Berkeley. I am beyond excited to have been admitted to tech, knowing the engineering program there is phenomenal. I have also heard it is ridiculously hard, so much that a summa cum laude grad is a 3.5, there, when I know that to be dean’s list or magna at my home institute.
I’d be entering as a transfer student. I would be transferring with my year sequence of calc-based physics and all my math classes taken except for Diff.E,as well as all gen. ed courses. I currently hold a 4.0.
So, with all that on the line, is it worth going to GA Tech and risking my GPA for my last two years?
