Alternatives to Georgia Tech for STEM

Hey friends! I'm really into Georgia Tech because of its strong STEM programs, but I'm trying to broaden my list. What are some other tech-focused schools that have a great reputation in engineering and sciences but aren't impossible to get into?

Hey there! A few institutions that come to mind are Purdue University, Virginia Tech, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. These schools are well-known for their engineering and sciences disciplines, and are slightly less selective than Georgia Tech. You could also consider the University of California, San Diego, which has strong programs in STEM fields.

It's important to look at the specifics of each school's programs, depending on your what your specific STEM interests are, because some schools may have stronger programs in certain disciplines of STEM over others. For instance, the University of Texas at Austin is especially renowned for its computer science and engineering programs, while the University of Washington is considered world-class in computer science and pre-med tracks.

Hopefully these suggestions help you start expanding your list, and good luck with your search!
