I got accepted to the following schools as an engineering major as a high school junior:

Carnegie Mellon
U. of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign
U. of Virginia
William & Mary

also I got waitlisted on the four schools:

Washington Univ. (St.Louis)
Cooper Union

Which of these schools has the best undergrad computer science/ computer engineering curriculum? Also, how would I be in the future in terms of jobs and grad schools?
Over the weekend I have visited Northwestern, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Columbia and Cooper Union, and I believe I'm suit for urban campuses.
I'm thinking it'd probably be Columbia or maybe Cornell, but I might go to any of the three waitlisted colleges if I get into any. Please advise!

from wat i hear, carnegie mellon has one of the best comp sci/eng program (up with MIT). Cornell might be a better choice if ur not sure about wat field of engineering u want to enter, but if u like citys i dont see how u could like it there. i dont no much a bout columbia. With CMU on the list id only consider Cooper union from ur waitlist skools (Cuz its free and in NYC)

its cool ur doing this as a junior, good luck

PS did u see the string about comp sci skools in this index?
