I have received an admit from ECE CMU and ECE Georgia Tech. My interest lies in computer architecture, FPGAs, digital design and hardware acceleration. I feel the course of CMU is better than Georgia Tech. But I am confused whether  ECE CMU really worth spending extra 30K USD? At Georgia, I will have a better opportunity of getting an RA or TA. 
At CMU, program is professional masters while at Georgia I have an option to choose Thesis .
I request you to please provide a better comparison of two programs from the perspective of my technical interests.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, what did you end up deciding and how was your experience?

I'm in the exact same situation and my interest lies in computer Architecture. Even I found the courses at CMU to be more organized and better than GaTech. But, I am confused if it is a wise decision financially since both colleges have equal rank and job opportunities. Moreover, CMU masters would be coursework oriented. Research opportunities seem better at GAtech.

I would like to know what you ended up deciding. Your experience and insights will help me make a well informed decision.
