    Depending upon your academic area of interest, Penn State is highly regarded and has been a consistent top 50 university. Illinois is also a high quality institution.

    No one can say whether these schools will be easy for you to get into without knowing at least a bit about your grades and test scores. People get rejected from all of these schools if they aren't within range.
    They are all good schools, however.

    Depends on what you want. Even in state schools there's a diffference. My picks would be Purdue and PSU, but that's just me.
