I am currently a biomedical engineer in the Boston area, which also isn't all that far from where I attended college. I was in your shoes only a few years ago and this is what I have to say based off my research when applying to colleges and now being in the workforce. I would definitely recommend looking at schools in Massachusetts and California. Those areas tend to have the best schools for anything tech/engineering. In my field, I often see the following schools represented: MIT, Harvard, any of the University of California schools but in particular UCBerkeley, CalTech, University of Washington, UPenn, Brown, Duke, Cornell, Yale, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, Johns Hopkins, WPI, Tufts, BU, Northeastern, Stanford, University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), Case Western University, UPitt, UConn, University of Wisconsin, the list could go on and on. The best research institutions and programs tend to stick close to those schools.
