Hi all, I applied to some accelerator schools and recently received some offers. 1. University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL) 2. University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) 3. Texas A&M (TAMU) 4. Northern Illinois University (NIU) Anyone here familiar with these schools ? NIU looks attractive with its close collaboration with Fermilab and Argonne National Lab, while UNL has its own facilities. However, I could not find any useful information about ongoing accelerator research in TAMU and UTK. It would great if some of you could share your experiences on these institutions. I have been using this thread for my graduate application, thank you everyone here for your contributions.
