Best Engineering schools on the east coast?

  1. Aug 18, 2008 #1
    Ok so I live in Virginia and want to go to school for engineering, the problem is picking one. I am applying to Virginia Tech and UVA and I should get into those. I am gonna apply to MIT just to see if I get in (I have a strong resume but I know it takes a hell of a lot more than that). But I don't just want to constrain myself to those schools, but if I go out of state I want to stay on the east coast. So what are the best engineering schools on the east coast that I might want to check out?

    Penn State and U of Mich are rated pretty highly, although I could never tell from their graduates.
