Hey guys, I was curious as to whether or not anyone here knows anything about the admission standards for GIT. I checked out their undergraduate requirements but im not quite sure how that relates to their grad admissions.

I was looking at their aerospace engineering program and from what I understand, its a pretty decent program. My main question here is does anyone have any general guidelines as to where most of the aerospace or just general engineering students fall in terms of GRE scores/college GPA?

Im about to enter my junior year of classes for mechanical engineering

Current GT student here. I'll assume you want to go into the MS program:

It varies from engineering department to engineering department, but the average GRE math will be around 770 and verbal will be around 550. GPA's will be around 3.5.

Well, I was accepted for Grad School at GATech in the Civil Engineering department back in 2008. I rejected the offer for another school.

Anyway, I can tell you my stats.

GRE Q760
V 580
AW 4.5

TOEFL iBT 100/120 (international student)

GPA: 3.9/4.0

1 year of work experience

3 solid recommendations letter, 2 academic (thesis advisor + dean of the civil eng department) and 1 from the Director of the DOT of my country.

I also visited the campus back in 2008. It looked very nice, and Atlanta as a city didn't look bad to me. I spoke with some faculty members and other grad students, the program looked solid back then. In fact, this school was one of my top choices.

Good luck!

Firstyeargrad- Are you currently in the MS aerospace program? If you wouldn't mind me asking, how do you like it?
