    USA: MIT, Caltech, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, U of Illinois Urbana Champagne and UC Berkeley.
    Canada: Waterloo, U of Toronoto, McGill and Queen's.
    UK: Cambridge and U of Edinburgh.

    That's my opinion, of course.

    I'll second UC Berkeley. Excellent reputation.

    Heman, I was just wondering...does the IIT campuses have a PhD program? If it does maybe you can continue there itself...IIT has a very good reputation.

    Carnegie Mellon is the top institute for CS in many rankings.
    Take this as you wish.
