WPI vs Virginia Tech
Hi, I am trying to decide between WPI and Virginia Tech. I really like the feel of WPI but I am worried employers outside New England will not recognize the school. I have asked many people in tech fields (students, professors at other universities, people working in SV) and none of them seem to have even heard of WPI. My parents think because of this Virginia Tech will be better, but I'm really not sure at this point. Will going to either school give me an advantage in securing a job (I don't mind working in New England, but I would like my degree to be known outside that area just in case).15 replies
