I've already been admitted to Oregon State University and Portland State University, and intend to apply to Berkeley, Boston University, McGill, University of Wisconsin, University of Minnesota, and RPI for Fall 2010 admission. My main interest is in intelligent robotics, machine learning and adaptive systems, and I hope to go on to graduate school after I complete my undergrad degree. I've been hearing a lot about how your undergraduate institution's reputation in your field can affect your chances of getting into good graduate programs. But, I can't seem to make heads or tails of rankings that I come across online. I know that Berkeley and Boston University are 'good schools,' but how are they regarded in EE? I'm particularly concerned about this with regards to PSU and OSU, since those are the only two schools I've been admitted to, and their rankings are all over the place. How do you sort out what programs are well-regarded? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
