    Who are our peers; public schools like Tennessee Tech or Louisiana Tech? Or do we more closely resemble private schools like Cal Tech or MIT? I don’t think we are a typical land grant college like aTm or Awburn.

    I pulled my data from the University System of Georgia website:

    https://www.usg.edu/assets/usg/docs/news_files/BOR_USG_Fall_2017_Enrollment_Report.pdf

    Page 8 - 12,020 Georgia students, 9,960 out of state students, 7,389 international students. USG didn't break the data out by undergrad/grad student.

    So it's actually 40% from Georgia - my bad.

    I still think we need more majors and the new president should push for them. I'm also surprised we're still only at 30% female enrollment. Thought it would be higher by now. Adding more majors will bring that closer to 50-50 too.

    I think you greatly underestimate the talent coming out of Georgia High Schools!

    The BOR and Brian Kemp are going to pick their guy and it will not be in the best interest of Georgia Tech.

    Jeff Duncan, Kemp's Lt Gov, is a GT grad, isn't he? Guess we'll find out how true to GT he is when the time comes to lobby for his alma mater.

    No. I just meant state schools in general. Not technical only. My point is for a state school funded by GA tax payers, i would hope to have more in state enrollment. We turn down alot of qualified Ga kids each year.

    Whether or not it’s true, the problem with going to uGA for engineering is that you’ll spend the rest of your career being asked why you didn’t go to GT. You better come up with a good answer that doesn’t involve the attractiveness of co-eds, the frequencies of parties, or the SEC.

    They also offer a BS + MBA 5 year degree. That’s a terrible idea.
    1. MBA + no experience = too qualified for entry level but not qualified for management level
    2. BS + MBA from the same school = single alumni network. An MBA from another school gives you 2 alumni networks.
    3. BS from a 2nd tier school + MBA from a second tier school = weak resume. If you have a 2nd tier BS, you need to try to elevate your grad school prestige. You’re branded by the best brand school you attend. BA from DeVry + MBA from Harvard makes you a “Harvard man.”

    UGAg is like the menu at Chili's. Yeah, there's lots of choices, but 3/4 of it's crap. Maybe 2 or 3 things are actually good. Tech is like Kevin Rathbuns. We do steak. That's what we do. And it's high class and damn good.

    I’d say uga is more like S&S Cafeteria.

    uga’s education is like the buffet at a low rent strip club: it’s not the reason you’re there, it’s not going to be good for you, and might run into @Akinji07

    BA from Georgia + MBA from Georgia makes you a “Garbage man.”
