Georgia Tech Ranked As Country's Best Academic Deal – Midtown Patch
A recent study showed the Georgia Institute of Technology is offering the best academic deal in the United States.
Georgia Tech’s class of 2009 paid almost $88,000 for their four-year degrees, but the median income for those grads was $59,000, which is 67 percent of what they paid.
That put Tech tops in the country according to a study conducted by Smartmoney Magazine. Many Tech students concentrate on science-oriented disciplines such as engineering and software design and that field have remained strong for post-graduate job opportunities.
