Best Physics Schools Around North Carolina

  1. Jul 25, 2012 #1
    Hello, I am a rising senior in high school and going to soon be entering the college application process. I am planning on entering school as a physics major, but that could possibly change to another major in one of the STEM fields (I am entering as a physics major because I will probably have to be proficient in physics no matter what major I end up choosing).

    I was wondering if you guys know of any good schools I should be checking out. I live in North Carolina, so anything on the west coast, new england, etc is not my best option. The schools I am currently looking at are Georgia Institute of Technology, UT Austin, NC State, and Duke university.

    Are there any others I should research? (preferably no farther from NC than Texas)

    Thank You

    I would suggest Georgia Tech.

    If you're looking as far afield as Texas, you might as well consider U of Maryland and U of Virginia also.

    I was going to say that Texas is most likely going to be significantly further from you than New England is...
