Well most of the UC's are pretty good (Irvine, Davis, etc.) as are Harvey Mudd and the other Claremont Colleges. Outside of that, I can't really say.
In Washington state, University of Washington and Western Washington University are both pretty good.
The best school in Oregon is probably Reed College.
Also, take a look at CU: Boulder and the Colorado School of Mines, each in Colorado.
Yeah funny thing, I got into UC Irvine. And I didn't apply to UC Irvine.
Did you hear that UCLA sent out 900 acceptance letters to students who were actually on the waitlist?
And French_Toast, though GPA is important, there's no GPA cutoff. Most good schools have a holistic review of applications, meaning that they don't have a GPA or SAT or whatever cutoff - they'll read your application and evaluate you as a whole.
