In technical fields (phys, EE, other engineering, computing, etc.) a few good schools I know are Berkeley, Caltech, MIT.

Yazir, do not worry about choozing grad school yet. Get into ANY reasonable college and start GE (general education) - calculus, english, computing, physics, chemistry, biology, etc. - athey are transferable to any other college and are required anywhere (you have to get 40-60 credit hours of GE before making selection of special classes).

Try to join as early as possible some professor in assisting him with research for one-two hours a day (does not matter much what kind of research - anyway you will mostly do no-qualification job like vacuum pumps cleaning or circuits soldering or machining aluminum/brass on lathe or mill machine). May be you can get paid $5-7/hour, maybe not. You will see what is research "from inside" and see if you like to be around. And it will look very good in your resumee that you already have research/lab experience. Doing assistance it is then much more easy to jump into good university later (in a year-two).
