Things learned from a recent College Visit to Georgia Tech


Four major items they consider for admissions:

1) Curriculum rigor and GPA

2) SAT and / or ACT

They super, super score the SAT and ACT, meaning they will take your highest score from either test to

calculate your highest total score possible.  For example, if your highest math score is from the ACT

and your highest critical reading score is from the SAT, they will take the math ACT score and combine

it with the critical reading SAT score.

3) Extra-curricular activities (including leadership positions)

4) Essay
