Need help deciding... (fast)
Alright, so I'm majoring in Mechanical Engineering, and maybe double majoring or minoring in either Computer Science, Math, or Business. I also think that I will get a MBA after my bachelors.
I have to decide between two schools, either University of Virginia, or Georgia Tech. I can go to either one I want, but I'm having trouble deciding which is best... Also, I would pay in state tuition to UVA, and out of state at Georgia Tech. My dad pays for school, but I don't want to make him pay more than he has to.
Basically I'm totally confused. Assuming that I do really well at either school, is there a big difference to employers seeing a degree from Georgia Tech versus UVA? I mean, Georgia Tech is #4 in Mechanical Engineering, but then UVA is basically an Ivy League school. I've seen both campuses, I think the other aspects of the schools are roughly equal.
Also if I have more majors, or get an MBA, the tuition difference increases and I think UVA's business school is prolly a lot better than Georgia Techs, so I guess I would go somewhere else for my MBA...
So, how does a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech and UVA compare when looked at by employers?
Any advice would be appreciated. I basically have to decide this right now.
