Transfer Options

  1. Apr 25, 2013 #1
    Hi all,

    I will be changing schools from a small liberal arts school as part of a 3-2 program and would like some help considering my options. It looks like I will be able to attend Tulane for engineering physics with a full tuition Scholarship or Georgia Tech for Electrical Engineering with no scholarship. I would like to go to graduate school for something like device or condensed matter physics, or alternatively nano EE applications. GT is a notably higher ranked school and so I was wondering if anyone thought attending would be worth the financial loss, especially considering my sub par Gpa (3.48), or if I should obviously take the free ride. In truth I can afford to attend GT with no (or small) student loans even without a scholarship, but that is a large chunk of money that my family could do other things with, even though they appear to be willing to pay it.

    To be more specific about my ambitions, I would really like to attend a UC for graduate school. I also spent a summer doing research at GT and really liked it and am a bit tired of New Orleans, but I guess that info isn't helpful.

    I would personally just take the full ride, I don't know that undergraduate institution matters all that much
