Hi, I'm applying undergraduate physics programs, and I want to ask your opinion on where you would go among the schools I'm considering to apply. The program (physics) is obviously my priority concern. Other than that, maybe the area; beautiful town, campus, and so on (I really wanted to apply some UC schools because they're good schools also the area is beautiful, I heard. But the deadlines are already passed :cry:..)

U Minnesota
RPI
U Rochester
Colorado School of Mines

Thank you in advance!

Okay, maybe I should ask "If you apply two of them, which would those be?"
I've already applied 5 schools (UPenn, Cornell, MIT, UChicago, UIUC) but I realized maybe I should apply some "safe" schools. However, most of the schools have March deadlines. I'm going to apply UWashington, Maryland, and NWU.
So I was wondering which 2 of the 5 schools would you apply? Anyone? please??

If you are going to be applying to U of Maryland, I would recommend that you apply to University of Maryland, Baltimore County(UMBC) as well. They are much cheaper than U of Maryland and they are one of the up-and-coming Universities in the nation. Also, they are #2 in the nation for NASA funding...

I agree with se7en. UMBC is a solid school. I prefer Maryland, College Park, but I go there, so I may be somewhat biased. Also, where do you live? U. of Maryland is pretty expensive to out-of-state students.

Thanks se7en and SpiffyKavu!
I live in Boston, MA. Right the economy is bad so tuition really matters. But the schools I've already applied are also really expensive ones. I feel sorry to my parents for that reason. All I can do is studying hard, trying to get out as much as I can.

Quick question for SpiffyKavu.
Is weather nice over there in College Park? I'm really tired of Boston's cold weather. Is it sunny?
