East Coast Engineering Schools

I am looking for a school that offers a good engineering program that is not very difficult to get into. What schools would this include?

    That depends on your definition of difficult to get into.

    wpi, northeastern, bu, umass, umd, and gatech have good programs and I believe uf, udel, and virginia tech do as well though I didn't look at them myself.

    penn state, if you consider that east coast. they are very highly ranked and are relatively easy to get in.

    I would also like to mention that their are many good engineering schools in new york and Pennsylvania, such as penn state mentioned above, if you consider those states east coast.

    Not that difficult would be outside of top 5 for enginerring and also for out of state

    ^Both number 5s are easier to get into than many of the colleges a little further down >_>

    By looking at your stats from your profile, I would recommend that you check out the following well-known east coast engineering schools:

    Virginia Tech
    Pennsylvania State U.–University Park
    Rensselaer Polytechnic Inst. (NY)
    Boston University
    Northeastern University (MA)
    Worcester Polytechnic Inst. (MA)
    Rochester Inst. of Technology (NY)
    Polytechnic University (NY)
    New Jersey Inst. of Technology
    Stevens Institute of Technology (NJ)

    I assumed you were talking about the U.S. new general engineering ranking for universities. Tied for 5th are Georgia Tech and UIUC. Both are excellent, but not super difficult to get into. UIUC may be harder to get into for engineering than for other things just based on the strength of its engineering program, I really don't know anything about the school. And with gatech there is probably some self selection going on with its applicant pool. But yeah you would most likely get into both places I would guess. Only reason you wouldn't is that your test scores are a bit on the low side.
