One pro (in my opinion) of the graduate psychology department is the small number of people. Since there are fewer students, the current students get to know others better, which leads to better networking and collaborative capabilities. A con I feel is the differences in the number of students in the different psychology programs. For example, there are so few quantitative psychology students compared with the other programs that the quantitative students may feel overshadowed or under appreciated compared with the students in the other programs.

Pros: Lot's of job recommendations all the time Mostly friendly faculty Excellent reputation Cons: Not a lot of social interaction between labs, between psychology types, between students. Atlanta traffic Atlanta weather Atlanta crime (probably on par with any city though)

Georgia Tech School of Psychology is one of the best in the nation. Living in the heart of Atlanta is fantastic, though transportation is a bit difficulty without a car. Top notch faculty that stresses getting people out on time. Highly respected.

If you can think of an area of research, chances are that someone at Georgia Tech is doing something related. This diversity also means that there aren't necessarily many people doing that type of research.

The combination of affordability/competitive stipends and high quality education make the Psychology Program, especially engineering psychology, at the Georgia Institute of Technology one of the best values in the world. The Human Factors program at GT is arguably the most presitigous and productive Human Factors training program in the world. There is lots of funding for presenting at conferences. The professors in all the programs are nationally if not internationally recognized as experts in their research domains. The focus on rigorously designed research prepares one equally for positions in academia and industry alike. Additionally, the night life and activities of the Greater Atlanta area at an affordable price make GT a wonderful place to work and play!
