    BU is a good school, but it's not particularly stellar for EE, and there are better schools that could give you lots of connections (and have decent financial aid, since BU has really crappy aid).

    It really depends on your academics...
    -If you're looking for a TOP top school, I would recommend MIT (of course,) Caltech, Stanford, Harvard, Cornell, UPenn, and Berkeley.
    -A little lower in prestige would be UCLA, CMU, UIUC, Georgia Tech, UMich--all still amazing schools though.

    Could you tell us a bit about yourself academically (courses, GPA, etc.) so we can offer more suggestions?

    Thanks :)
