True, where you go doesn't matter a whole lot.
Has anyone heard of South Dakota School of Mines and Tech? No? Well they have 99% placement(avg $58k/yr) in engineering just like MTU, and plenty of other tech schools with jobs... And it only costs 14k a year total for out of staters. What I'm getting at is, the school doesn't matter a whole lot, especially for engineering. You will get a job either way out of college probably, and 5 years down the road, it's experience that matters much more. An engineer with 5 years of experience will get a job before an engineer with a Masters but no experience...
Georgia Tech will be a good school for you, you'll be plenty challenged there.
