    In addition to your list, you might want to also look into:
    u. pittsburgh, u. penn, temple, penn state erie (behrend),
    swarthmore, bucknell, bryn mawr, haverford, dickinson

    ...in NJ, near Philadelphia, there's also princeton

    I'm surprised to see Dickinson on the list... I live about 10 minutes from there, perhaps I'll check it you too. Though its suppose to be pretty expensive. I think the SAT score average or something to get in there is like a 1300 or something (classic score).

    I'm not sure about your area of interest, but I worked at the Villanova University Astronomy Department for two summers. Since they only grant astronomy bachelor's degrees, their undergrads are heavily involved in research. The undergrads I spoke to seemed happy with the level of education, and the department was very close-knit.
