Top Science and/or Engineering Universities

<p>Can anyone please list like 10 to 15 top science and/or engineering schools in order. Please don't give me any like newsweek stuff because I could look that up myself. Let me know why you think the schools are ranked in the way you ranked them.</p>

<p>It's hard to rank them for you without knowing something about you, just as the Newsweek and USNWR rankings apply only to a non-existent generic student who also happens to agree with magazine editors on what is important.</p>

<p>i was thinking along the lines of quality of education and job placement after matriculation.</p>

<p>Um, more like what size of school, part of the country, your academic credentials, need for financial aid. Anything generic would likely give you worse advice than magazines, due to personal biases (and I sure have them!). Science is more likely to require grad school for employment, than would engineering. What kind of science, what kind of engineering?</p>

<p>I really like physics and if I were to be an engineer I would likely be an aerospace engineer. I would prefer a smaller school. like less than 20,000 students. I have solid stats, my test scores fall into HYPMIT midranges, 4.0 uw, good ecs. I will need financial aid as much as the next guy, if it really came down to the money I would go to a state school where I could get merit aid that would likely give me a free ride.</p>

<p>What's your home state?</p>

<p>I live in Michigan.</p>
