Which would you choose? In general Virginia Tech is ranked higher by US News, except in Chemical and Biomedical Engineering and just about tied in Electrical (VT-17, UVA-19)(I will most likely do Mechanical and might do Electrical). VT has 10,000 total more undergraduates. It is also harder to get into UVA than VT. In terms of prestige the UVA name seems to carry a bit more weight since overall undergrad UVA is ranked 23 and VT is ranked 71.
