* UT Austin

This is the undergraduate school rankings based on recruiters (aka the horses mouth), which could provide hints about the grad schools:

1. Carnegie Mellon University
2. Berkeley
3. Michigan
4. Georgia Institute of Technology
5. Virginia Polytechnic
6. MIT
7. Penn State University
8. Purdue University
9. University of Illinois
10. Maryland

Ideally, I would pick a decently sized city so that it would be easy to attend industry events and get internships (CMU, Berkeley, Boston, MIT, & Maryland all have this–Maryland being connected to Washington DC). Also, as Paul Graham is fond of saying, there is something about the ambition in cities which happen to be start up hubs.
