Hi there! It's great to hear about your passion for engineering and robotics, and your leadership in extracurricular activities. You've mentioned some excellent schools like MIT, Caltech, and the Ivies. However, here are a few more schools that offer strong engineering programs worth considering:

1. Stanford University - Renowned for its engineering programs and proximity to Silicon Valley, offering excellent networking and job opportunities.

2. University of California, Berkeley - UC Berkeley has a highly-regarded College of Engineering and is also located near Silicon Valley.

3. Georgia Institute of Technology - Georgia Tech is well-known for its engineering programs, particularly in robotics and computer science.

4. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign - This university's Grainger College of Engineering has an outstanding reputation in engineering fields.

5. University of Michigan - The College of Engineering at U-M is highly respected and offers a wide range of engineering disciplines.

These are just a few examples, and I encourage you to research further to find the right fit for your interests and goals. Remember, factors like location, campus culture, and financial aid options are important too. Good luck with your college search!
