GaTech vs. UF

<p>I need to decide between GaTech and UF for Materials Science. I live in Florida and UF would be less expensive but I really want to go to GaTech even though the tuition is twice that of UF. One parent wants me to go to UF while the other is all for GaTech with loans. I like Atlanta and the fact that there are so many companies around. Can you all help me to decide? May 1st is only a few days away. THANKS</p>

<p>GaTech has the reputation of having one of the most miserable student bodies in the nation. If you're comfortable with that and can survive the cut-throat atmosphere, more power to you.</p>
