I think both of them are very descent schools. At least they are more prestigeous than my Alma Mater---Kleiden University in New York. Actually, it does not make any sense to judge the people on the basis of their origin, race, education... For instance, a lot of physics majors have ever studied Einstein's relativity theory, but few of them can really explain it to the public.

Give you another example. As I interviewed one job candidates some time ago, he claimed he is different from those who come from the computer training center because he knows methodology and patterns. I asked him to give me one example for each of the following patterns: 1) Factory Method; 2) Visitor; 3) Facade; 4) Flyweight. He sweated and sweated and sweated .... Finally he admitted he has ever taken a course entitled "Design Patterns". He told me that the only thing he can remember is the singleton patterm. If he is really asked to use patterns, he needs to look up the books.

Since I worked as a programmer, I have been feeling some prejudice towards the people who do not graduate from some prestigeous school or has no degrees in computer science. Unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold. For instance, I have witnessed two M.S. degree holders in computer science who has no idea about mutil-processing, multi-threading..I asked them how. One of them told me he sold his "Operating System" textbook right after he passed the examination. For such people, no matter how many courses they have ever taken, we cannot expect he is more competent than people from the training center. Even if they have stayed in Harvard or MIT for a couple of years, ....
