From Dropout to Summa Cum Laude: Andrew Kell Makes the Grade
Like many students, Andrew Kell enrolled in Georgia Tech right after high school. But, he blew it. He dropped out after two years because of poor grades, fueled by substance abuse, depression, and apathy. After a five-year hiatus, including time in a rehabilitation program, he went through the process of readmission and academic renewal to come back to Tech at age 24. Now, he is graduating with a bachelor’s degree and a 4.0 grade point average in chemical and biomolecular engineering.
