What's your research focus? Did you feel like you found a good research fit at either university?

i would choose Gtech.

It's impossible to make an informed recommendation of one school over another based on name alone. Both have highly regarded CS PhD programs and have offered an assistantship, so the decision is up to whether one school would be a better fit for the OP. 

 

@khs, one more question: Were you able to make a visit to either university?

No. I am from India, it just was not possible for me to visit the campus.

I'm not sure quite yet as I am still deciding, but I strongly believe that your research fit with a university is the most important aspect of a graduate school decision. What is your research focus?

I don't know that either program is stronger in that field. Maybe you could arrange a few Skype meetings with potential advisors at each program to see which would be a better fit.
