I was accepted to both Cornell (engineering) and CMU (computer science and engineering). I can't decide between the two. Could you please help me and tell me which one would you go to and why?

Computer Science - CMU
Engineering - Cornell

If you're not sure... Cornell. I say CMU as a definite for computer science because it's like the second best program in the country... right behind MIT.

I've heard the CS at CMU is a great graduate program, but has flaws as an undergraduate -- most notably the number of students. Even tho' CMU is not that big, because of the number of students in CS, that major feels more like a large state school. We were warned that you easily end up "just a number" unlike at smaller schools. My s. was accepted but we are concerned about that perception. Any knowledge in that regard?
