<p>I'm a graduating senior this year. So far, I've gotten into ASU Barrett, U of A honors college (A being Arizona in both cases), Kettering, and Rose-Hulman. I've applied to several others, but don't hear back until March or April. I have been considering the colleges I've gotten into so far in case I don't get in anywhere else, or if the costs turn out to be prohibitive, and I've asked around about Rose-Hulman and Kettering, since I haven't heard much about them outside of US News rankings and the like. One concern that I heard about Kettering was that its reputation does not extend far beyond the region, and that a degree from there would be somewhat limiting as far as graduate school or seeking employment outside of the auto industry. My aunt (a college counselor) had heard similar things about Rose-Hulman having a primarily regional reputation. I was wondering if anyone had heard similar things about either of these schools, or if they'd heard something completely different. Personal experiences would be great, too.</p>
<p>Thanks in advance!
