Malik, I tend to question all the stock put into which schools are "the best" for this or that program as opposed to just making sure it's a good field, making good grades, and building connects. Most HBCUs arent rated as high as PWIs, but I dont hear about graduates (at least with people I know) being any more or less able to find work compared to those who went to higher ranked PWIs. I talk to someone now who did Computer Science at Fort Valley State and she got a job in Atlanta. She stays in a very expensive apt complex in Sandy Springs and is in the process of buying a home, so going to FVSU certainly doesnt look like it hindered her.

Can't speak for other people/schools but I went to GA Tech for CS and this statement could not be more wrong. I'm in my early 30s and I'm close to the top 1 percent in the nation in income among people in my age group. You rarely get that with just a high school education.

I would caution the OP though that Tech has gotten significantly more competitive with admissions in recent years (as has UGA).
