One other thing worth doing is to meet someone in the field you are choosing and job shadow with them. I have several friends who went to college, got the degree, and found out afterwords that they hated the jobs they got. It may not even be the work itself but the culture that is present in the workplace.

Another added benefit is people in the field can give you an honest opinion of the school, from where it matters, from the eyes of the employer.

Just because a college has a "College of Engineering" doesn't mean it is competent or even respected and you may end up with a sub-par education and everyone will know it. Reputation is everything, the right field, with the right school, and you can waltz through job interviews. Get the wrong school with the wrong program and you won't even get interviews.
