    A good read.... yes, believe it or not, from the AJC (Link)

    I normally wouldn't bother with an AJC article, but since the legacy issue has been raised in this forum on many occasions, here's a very good answer for "Have we gotten too big for our britches?"

    And I love the line: "Conversely, Tech could become even more elite/MIT-like, and forget the practical part. To which I will remind them, as always--"Engineers put planes on flight lines, PhDs put unread papers on library shelves.""

    The article was rambling but isn't the tough entrance into GT mainly for those students that want engineering degrees? If you want a history or other far easier majors isn't entrace at a moderate level for student athletes?

    Many years ago we had the debate about the majors GT offers. Someone went and pulled all the majors and posted them. It was stunning how many were just your average ordinary majors.
