@ Veiva I went to Georgia Tech, let me know if you have questions about it
Is it possible for me to transfer while missing some pre-reqs is my only question lol. If that's a yes, I'm confident I'd transfer in. A few of my teachers at my school went to Georgia Tech and they liked it but that was anywhere from 10-40 years ago. (One of them was talking about how the area around Georgia Tech was like "the projects" when he attended but that's no longer a problem obviously).
Seriously though, when did you go? What program were you in? How difficult were the courses? If you've been to another school, how do the courses compare at Georgia Tech? Was going to Georgia Tech over a smaller university worth it? What were the networking opportunities like while you attended?
I could most definitely get into NC State which would be like 1/10th the cost, but a CS degree from Georgia Tech looks a lot better than a CS degree from NC State...
I graduated last May, BS/MS in aerospace engineering. Bottom line: think hard about it, you may well be better off going to NC State.
I went to GT out of state, took on a decent amount of debt, worked hard (the rumors about courses being needlessly difficult are pretty true), got good grades, made a lot of friends, and generally had a great time there. Very good clubs and networking opportunities. I don't regret having done it and overall I love the place and the city. I got a nice job out of the deal and I'm happy with it. However, I have plenty of coworkers who went to less "prestigious" schools, including local state universities near where I grew up. I can't help but think I could have taken a more pleasant and less expensive path to the same place I'm at now. In most cases I think the optimal play (if you're the one paying) is to get the cheapest degree you can, after your first job it's not going to make much difference where you got it.
