Right now I'm a senior in high school looking at schools to apply to, and I plan to get a degree in physics and pursue graduate coursework. My problem is this: two of my top-choice schools, University of Chicago and Princeton, do not offer a BS in physics--just a BA. I'm wondering if this will affect my chances at going to a graduate school and whether this will make a large impact on my education. I assume education-wise I will be fine, as these schools claim to offer and encourage highly extensive research opportunities for undergrads, often beginning freshman year and alongside graduate students. But will graduate schools frown upon a "mere" BA in physics or recognize the research and notoriety of the physics departments at these schools? Both schools state that their physics departments offer a lot of flexibility in which physics courses to take: I don't know if this is why they're BA or if they're BA simply because they don't offer quite enough physics courses total to constitute as a BS degree. Thanks in advance! I greatly appreciate any help during this rather stressful decision-making time.
