As a note, with Eldritch Knight, I tend to build with self-buffing in mind and I expect a lot of people look at it as "Swords and magic, I'm going to cast fireballs and wield a sword, yeah!" and that's probably not going to give Eldritch Knight the best use. Much better to, say, cast Jump and Expeditious Retreat on yourself so you're now a Fighter that's sort of Monking around the battlefield.
Granted you're limited in those spells...because they're not Abjuration or Evocation....but apparently you can start with them and you get a handful of "any school" levels.
