<p>I'm a first year Computer Science/Mechanical Engineering double degree student. UMCP has a rigorous ME program, but it's ranked low compared to U of I, GaTech, and Berkeley. So, this leads to the question how lucrative is a UMCP ME degree in respect to the other schools? </p>
<p>I know some students give up attending GaTech to attend UMCP for undergrad. Is it worth it?
(#5> #22 that's 17 spots!, according to US Today)</p>
<p>Is worth transferring to one of the other schools - U of I, GaTech, and Berkeley - because of the higher ranking?</p>
