Is it just me, or are all those big names overrated? The school you go to does not limit what you learn. It might change your career (and your wallet), of course.

EDIT:
I 'spose it's completely different for graduate work.

There was a study recently that suggested that cost wise, state/public schools offer just as good as a return as say going to MIT, Harvard, etc...

Completely different animal for grad work though; study didn't cover that.

I go to UMBC and it's pretty good. A lot of the people here are either in Computer Science or in some Engineering Major.
