Georgia Tech or Northeastern for ME
I've been accepted to these two schools and need to get a deposit in soon. I've found lots of different advice concerning which to go (for Mechanical engineering)- but thought I'd put out a specific query to find people's opinions. About GT, I've heard that it's the better engineering school, but I do like Boston (including the weather) a lot more than Atlanta, having only visited Atlanta for a few days.I attended a Connect-with-Tech session and enjoyed myself, but wasn't strongly affected either way. I am international so would be out of state at GT.
So far I've been leaning strongly to Northeastern because of advice like "go where you'll be more comfortable/happy."
My question then is, is the perceived "drop off in quality" of GT's to NU's engineering programme so much that it would be a mistake to choose NU? Has anyone been to either place and felt employability, social life etc was affect by their choice?
