Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all
I am reaching the final stage of deciding which school to go for PhD in mechanical engineering.
Though UIUC is having a big name in mechanical engineering, I think I am going to UCSD for the seemingly more interesting research there...
Would it sounds very ridiculous or what?
What do you guys think?

If you know for sure what you want to do research in or there are many more things at UCSD that interest you, go there. Name doesn't mean everything and those schools both have good names anyways. If location matters (it seems like it doesn't), I would much rather live in San Diego than Urbana-Champaign (middle of nowhere).
