lawret219,

What are your career goals?
I think you even in the COMPETITIVE bracket you can do better than Temple U. Fox belongs in STRONG. difficult to suggest schools without knowing your career goals, but usually engineers like MIT

I saw that you applied to BU - did you get in? I'm only asking because my goals are similar and I'm interested in BU as well.
