better to go with the ranking in this case. If you preferred field is IT, you will not get much kudos on the West Coast from San Diego State in that field. you would be competing with all the top West Coast schools and the comparison is too easy to make. If you come in from U of Iowa, not only is it not comparable as a West Coast School, it is in the top 50 ranking, so is likely to be a better sell. Having said that, i would contact the Career Placement Center in each school and ask them how many students get jobs in IT and specifically which companies recruit for such jobs at their schools.
