I enrolled in a full-time dual-enrollment program, conducted independent research, and was just a well-rounded candidate. I know high school counselors tell an applicant to be "Well-rounded" if they want to go to a good institution. THIS IS ONLY PARTLY TRUE. If you want to go to an Ivy League school, you can forget it if you're "well-rounded." To go to an Ivy, you need three things:

1. Be valedictorian
2. Be ridiculously good at something (as in so good, you outclass professionals in your field)
3. Have taken the HARDEST COURSES YOU CAN FIND, and GET 100's in all of them.

Obviously, this is a bit impossible. Which is why the valedictorian of my school, the salutatorian of my school, and everyone else who were high up in my class are all attending Tech.
Because as the old song says: "..Don't send my boy to Emory, I'd rather see him dead. But send my boy to Georgia Tech, 'tis better than Cornell. As for the University of georgia, I'D RATHER SEE HIM IN HELL!"

Go to a school where there is surrounding industry like Ohio. Georgia stinks.

If you want to get in to Tech, your GPA must be 4.0+ and your SAT's should probably be above 2000. If you don't have these numbers I would hope that your a girl applying for the School of Aerospace Engineering simply because they need girls in that dept.
