    well VT would definately be a more real college experience in my opinion. Lots more fun, plus Tech is definately much more prestigous than GMU in almost everything, especially science/engineering.

    Have you been to campus? You should visit and see where you like better. I have a few friends that transferred from GMU and none of them seem to regret it.

    I think Virginia Tech has a stronger reputation. Tech is also much more school-spirited and more involved.

    Well i chose GMU because VT's spirit was really overbearing, also the people there and giving the tours just turned me off because they seemed so...I don't know not personable I guess. Plus GMU has a better Neuroscience program (the professors are all Ivy grads and pioneers in their fields and a pretty new neurosci lab) and there are a lot more opportunities for students close to D.C. rather than being stuck in Blacksburg, but's that's just my opinion.

    rmatai, Good luck at GMU. It sounds like you put a lot of thought into what would make you feel right about your choice. Although what turned you off about VT was what turned my kid on (he loved the school spirit and the people he met on his tour), everyone has to go with their gut. Don't feel the need to justify it to anyone. Do great things up there in Fairfax!
