Hmm I would say either UCLA or Gatech.

Gatech is ranked better than UCLA for engineering, but UCLA is also a very good school in a great location. There are pros and cons for both, it's up to you end of the day.

What is your profile like, mind posting it here?

Well, Cornell is the more prestigous university (although not particulary known for its engineering program). UCLA has a lot of strong points but is in an incredibly expensive area to live. If it was me, I would definitely pick Georgia Tech. GA Tech has an awesome engineering program, Atlanta is a nice place to live and fairly affordable, and the being in the Southeast will land you some good prospects. Although I am not an engineering major, I went to a school with a lot of engineering students for undergrad and it seems like the students I know with Electrical Engineering degrees have done very well. The need for electrical engineers seem to be growing at a faster rate than industrial engineers (in the U.S. anyway). Hope that helps a little.

Your reply matters a lot! I'm going to continue my study in EE major! Thank you!
