Well most of the UC's are pretty good (Irvine, Davis, etc.) as are Harvey Mudd and the other Claremont Colleges. Outside of that, I can't really say.People who are familiar with CA, anyone have recommendations for schools to look into besides the obvious(Stanford, USC, UCLA, UC Berkeley). I've been thinking I wanna go to school out west, but I've hovered around a 3.3-3.4 GPA, so I probably won't get into the top schools.
In Washington state, University of Washington and Western Washington University are both pretty good.
The best school in Oregon is probably Reed College.
Also, take a look at CU: Boulder and the Colorado School of Mines, each in Colorado.
