Wow, great list. I'm very pleased, because I study in Harvey Mudd College;) Nowadays, it's very hard to study and for me writing essay is the most difficult task in college. I'm not a good writer at all, so I often use speedypaper review. Yes, it look like cheating, but what else I have to do when I have at least one day to write essay and don't know what to wite about at all. That resource often help me out in such situations, so I can fully rely on them.

Valpo vs Valparaiso

Obviously, this author is not familiar with some of these schools.  The listing says Valparaiso University College of Engineering but the article title says Valparaiso Technical Institute.  These are two entirely different schools.  Valparaiso University is routinely recognized as a top school in the US News and World Reports annual rankings for small midwestern schools.  It has an excellent engineering school with top notch professors who actually teach instead of doing research.  Go Crusaders!

The importance of dissertation

I've heard that such big tech companies like IBM, Microsoft claim that they can't find talented people, while 30% of young people (20-24 years) can't find jobs. Why they can't American undergrads and train them? Big Indian companies, for example, employ college students, train them, and send to big companies. Maybe students should study better, and write good papers? By the way, do you know that dissertation is very important as an entire grade depends on this final paper? Consult  this service http://dissertationwritinglab.com/, it can assist you with the dissertation writing process and also it contains a good collection of tips how to make well-written and well-structured paper without any mistakes.

The old man insisted that I go to Stevens Tech (Hoboken, NJ), become a Mechanical Engineerand he'd pay for it.  I shrugged my shoulders, packed my belongings and moved out to Cleveland and got an EE degree at Fenn College of Engineering (CSU).  No student loans, no scholarships and no aid.  I just busted hump and worked as mechanic, machinist and tech jobs, while daddy dear paid for a Rutgers/Princeton PhD philosophy degree and a Columbia Masters  anthropology degree for my sisters.  The divide became so wide that I never talked to the family since. 

But I would do it the same way again since the rewards (of blood/sweat/tears) are priceless.

I am going to comment specifically on the article presenting information about Cal Poly SLO. I'm a 1979 Electronic Engineering grad from there.

The facts presented in the article don't seem to paint an accurate picture of the institution. The issue I have is the quoted tuition. It is a good number as far as it goes, i.e. $8,742 for tuition. However, the cost of attending Cal Poly from their own website is estimated at $24,177 or nearly 3 times the tuition!  Doesn't this more closely reflect the expected cost of getting an education at this institution?

Another BIG issue with the article is that there are TWO California Polytechnic Universities. Cal Poly Pamona is a great school too with a similar reputation in industry. Shouldn't the article have mentioned both?

They have different locations but similar educational philosophies.

@Susan "after the Black Death in Europe, skilled workers could demand and get more money for a while because supply was low.)"

My daughter just wrote about that for her high school history class. How ironic you should mention that today.

Re: Olin College

Olin is in Needham, Mass., which borders Wellesley, home to Babson College and Wellesley College. Babson is a very good business school (I could have gone there for my MBA). Wellesley is a top women's college.

Boston College (could have gone there for my MBA too) is about 8 miles from Olin.

We never hear about Oil in the local press. MIT gets all the coverage. Oh yes, there's some other school in Cambridge that get a lot of press, too.
