    Got into computer science. Unless I get into Berkeley (don't see that happening lol) I'm going to Illinois.

    -ranked 5th in computer science just behind MIT, Stanford, Berkeley and CMU
    -ranked 6th in engineering
    -22 Nobel prize winners among staff and alumni
    -alumni have founded companies like AMD, Yahoo, Netscape, YouTube, Safari, Firefox, etc
    -average starting salary for BS is 70,000
    -most of the students Microsoft recruits are from Illinois
    -on campus recruitment from Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, etc

    Seems like a fantastic school really. Only downsides are that the weather is a bit chilly and the university is sort of secluded but those are pathetically minor flaws.
