I am undergraduate first-year student from Georgia (country, not state of US). I am planning to continue learning in caltech or berkeley on electronics / mechanics faculty. I have been studying physics for 2 years by МГУ program (it's beside university), which used to be the best physics program in Soviet Union. My question is, will it do any good to continue learning physics beside university? I mean, will it affect chances of my financial aid or application to have completed physics GRE subject test or to have done any work in physics? I'm planning to take subject tests in math / Computer sciences.
