So, which school is better- Penn state or Ohio State for computer science?

Overall, and in terms of reputation, which will provide me with the best education and opportunities?

Any input in appreciated.

    both of them are good for computer science.penn state is a few places tops in comp sci rankings...but both of them are good for ur field and u will get good opportunites.just work hard wherever u go.try and call the departments at both schools and ask about research opportunites and which companies hire at the schools,then make ur decisions from that.Hope that helps.

    retheem, I have the opportumity to be in the honors program for computer science student at OSU. Schreyer (the honors program at PSU) is better, but extremely competitive, and I don't have the credentials to get in. In this scenario, would OSU be more promissing-specially since I want to apply to med/grad school?
