Have anyone heard about Imperial College (London)? It's quite well known in the UK, but i'm wondering about its reputation in the states. If you have, what do you know about it? Thanks a lot

go imperial: most def

it's better regarded everywhere (3rd in UK, not low @ all in International Ranking) and UK schools in general are good bcoz they are 'specific'. plus, they add to your 'diversity'.
Go Imperial, it's in London too, ;)

thanks a lot, Imperator
I also see another thread comparing harvey mudd and princeton, though. it seems that hmc is not bad either, although imperial seems to have more international rep. plus, i'll have an MSci degree there in 4 years... (as opposed to a BSc one)

It's great for sciences but the social life isn't great - it's very easy to get lost in the crowd and London isn't necessarily "forgiving" either.
If you're ready to work hard and play hard (and study science) you probably won't find a better place, but a friend of mine who went there found it really tough for the first year because she wasn't terribly outgoing and had a hard time fitting into the social scene.
Also, some of the residences are *terrible* but I think they were scheduled to be renovated...
