I just want to point one thing out here. UVA and VT are completly different schools. If you want a law degree or business degree, you go to UVA. However they cant even touch Virgina Tech's Engineering and Science programs. Both schools are commpletely respectable institutions of learning, but for different areas of study. The demographics are different, with UVA being more preppy and upper class, and VT students having a more casual demeanor and coming from middle class backgrounds. There are rednecks at VT, but most dont make it past freshman year.
Oh, and no one really cares about the Citadel/Virginia Tech rivalry.

Now lets stop this rediculous rivalry and stop comparing apples to oranges.
~I want to major in electrical engineering with a minor in mathematics, so i think i will go to Virginia Tech.

~Thats cool, i want to major in business manegment and become an entrepreneur so i will go to UVA.

~Awesome, i respect your decision because we have different tastes in education.

A prestigious University which handled the deadliest single-gunman shootout in American history with poise and grace by uniting in a display of school spirit untouched by any other collegiate institution.
Anyone trying to exploit this site to make light of the loss of 32 invaluable lives at Virginia Tech needs to go rot in hell. It is disgusting that urbandictionary.com would approve some of the sickeningly vile definitions above.

The most amazing and school in the state of Virginia. Also the largest research institute in Va. and produces 42% of Va's PhD's. VT is the home of the third largest computer in the world and every building is made of "hokie stone," which completes its amazing architecture.

*#1 Architecture school in country
*Top notch Engineering program
*Good business school
*#1 campus dining in country
*Respected Football team (good at other sports too but it is a football school)
*No preppy dbags (like UVa)
*Intelligent student body (average gpa for class of '13 was 3.94)
*Alumni have the highest initial salary in Virginia
Contrary to popular belief (by belief I mean rumors spread by faggy UVa students) the student body does not consist of rednecks, VT doesn't take just anyone. The student body mostly come from middle class families and are generally pretty smart. They don't fuck animals (another completly retarded rumor) unless by "fuck animals" you mean "party like crazy".
Virginia Tech: Good food, good football, cool people, good academics, good parties, and lots of shool spirit.
In short, the place you want to be if you want to be successful in life while having fun along the way.

The BEST university in Virginia... If you take out UVA and William and Mary. But hey, our engineering is good, right?
Guy 1: Yeah, I got into UVA and W&M but I chose Virginia Tech
Guy 2: No you didn't.
Guy 1: I know....

A prestigious university in a college town full of bars providing nightlife. Not to mention the football team that draws Virginians from all over the state. Cavaliers seem to think that it is filled with people who couldn't get into UVA. However, the majority of Hokies never desired to go to UVA in the first place. And VT doesn't take just anybody. So those of you prospective students better make sure you got a good gpa or sat score because VT's public and your money doesn't matter to the admissions office. (unless your parents make a valuable donation of course) Just because you got into Bridgewater does not mean Tech will take you. Private schools take anybody these days. So if you want to be a future Hokie, you better get off your ass and study.
