Definitely inquire in the department you are interested in. Compare the recruiting events at Northeastern/ UD, Penn State/Rutgers see if there are differences , location to industry you are interested in, where you may eventually want to live after college. These things may become obstacles later on for your first job. Many things freshman do not think about.
The employment scene currently for new graduates is pretty scary, what it will be like 3 years from now is anyones guess. Right now, it is quite bad. Of the HS kids we know, all finished in 4 years at their respective schools(various top 50 NE/MidAtlantic Uni) May 2012, 4 engineers, 2 business,1 marketing, 3 finance, non have obtained full time employment.
