so basically my parents just told me that i have to decide what college i want to attend by tonight

a lot of you people are either in the midst of or through this process(and are interested in the same things i am) so i thought it would be a good place to ask.

UC Berkeley is a good choice, that's where I'm going.  It's a public school (usually considered the best in the country) so its probably less expensive than a private school even if you're from out of state.  It's also consistently in the top 5 schools in the world for computer science and engineering.  It's hard to get in though, you pretty much need almost strait A's.  This is my first semester there so I haven't actually started yet, but from what I've seen so far, their college of engineering is really nice.

well, U of Tulsa has a good comp sci program, and if you're interested in anything technology/engineering, U of Missouri-Rolla (a.k.a. Missouri Science and Technology) is a good place to go.  I think Dartmouth has a good computer program, also.
However, if you're looking for a good buy, Truman State University (in Kirksville, MO) is a very good school with a good computer science program.  I think in-state tuition is $11,000, maybe. Out-of-state is$14,000, I believe, but you'll want to look that up.
