Short Essay (1,000 character limit)
Why are you interested in attending Georgia Tech, and what do you hope to contribute to our community?
My goal is to become a successful engineer. Looking at schools last year, I was drawn to Georgia Tech's strong engineering curriculum. After visiting last April, I learned Georgia Tech was much more than strong academics. Of all the other programs Georgia Tech has to offer, I am most interested in joining the Co-op program because it alters semesters allowing students to bring what they have learned in the classroom to their employment. Also, Georgia Tech sends students to work with major companies like GE and Delta. Lastly, having spent time at engineering schools, I learned the importance of a strong sense of community. As I toured Georgia Tech, I was impressed by tour guide's poise and intellect, but she really awed me by how she felt about her school. She conveyed a strong sense of belonging and connection to the community, which is why I have chosen to apply early. I hope to be wearing white and gold this fall.
