What are some good grad schools for a Comp-Sci major & Do employers care where degree is from?
I just wanted to get a feel for what grad schools are out there for Computer Science majors. I've been touting the idea for quite some time, as I think I may apply somewhere down the road. Does anyone know of some good schools (preferably schools that don't cost an arm and a leg). Also, do prospective employers care where your degree comes from (which University you went to)? Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance! 10pts

Some employers only recognize programs that are accredited by ABET. The prestige of the school matters in some cases, if the manager recognizes the school as being well respected for Computer Science. An example would be a degree from Carnegie Mellon, MIT, CalTech, Stanford, Berkeley, or other top tier universities... More

Employers don't really care where you get your degree. They care about you and how you, how you perform, and your attitude. I recommend that you go to the school that will cost you the least. Paying more for your degree doesn't make it better.
