Academics Rating

Your curriculum will be as challenging as you make it. The more difficult classes tend to be smaller with demanding on-hands professors. Entry classes can be big with little prof-student interaction. If you want to skate taking 'guts' you can, but if you wanted to do that you could just go to VA Tech.
