Is your institution accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)? How about North Central? What do you think of these agencies, and of accreditation in general?

When I was at Johns Hopkins as an undergrad, the Mathematical Sciences department (now Applied Mathematics and Statistics) was just going through ABET accreditation for the first time. Since I came to K-State in 1999, we've had two ABET visits and two North Central visits. As you may know, some of the top American universities, such as MIT, Stanford, and CMU (which happen to occupy the top three slots among CS Ph.D. programs, according to the Computing Research Association, U.S. News and World Report, and several other ranking agencies) don't even bother with accreditation, on the principle that their reputations stand for themselves. While I think this is true, I was just curious as to people's stances on the matter.
