I'm from Indiana and considering going to an Ivy league school for engineering or technology after I graduate from high school. When asking various people about potential engineering schools, Purdue always comes up. What I hear from one person is that it's Ivy league. Another tells me it's public, but rated up with Ivy league schools.
Should I study engineering/technology at Purdue, or will it's questionable ivy league status not live up to the likes of MIT or other prestigious schools?
One thing to keep in mind, is my in-state cost for Purdue will be heavily discounted. I am definitely weighing this in as a factor for my final decision.
