Not only this, but my favorite case study is Andrew Luck. He was an ENGINEER, gotta be some sort of Renaissance man to be an engineer and succeed at a school like Stanford then be the #1 draft pick right? After looking at the degree requirements, um not an engineer. Architectural Engineering is a watered down Civil Engineering degree for architects who don't want to do studio and enjoy trig based physics. So among engineers he's not an engineer, BUT to the rest of the world he's an engineer who graduated from one of the best schools in the world. It's sad but true. I work with a girl who got her BS and masters in BME from Catholic U. They have a 4-1 auto admit program with an average GPA of over 3.5. She describes the classes she had to take as "fun" and talks about how she had classes where they worked with LEGOs and how her professors didn't really care about grades. She doesn't know jack-$h*t about engineering or even human biology, but she still gets to say she has a masters degree and is an engineer.Once again, Tech has 36 majors versus 118 at Stanford
GT is a whole different world. Other engineers get it's a hard school, the rest of the world understands we're smart, but only a GT grad (or dropout) knows to what level it really is.
