I'm 17 years old and going to be applying to colleges next month. I plan to major in physics. My UC/CSU GPA is a 3.8 (probably will be a 4.0 or higher by the end of this semester due to AP and community college courses), whereas my accumulative weighed GPA is a lousy 3.2. Therefore, my only real option is to apply to UC colleges and hope for the best. My community college astronomy professor told me UC Santa Cruz is an excellent college for physics. I don't know, though. Any thoughts on what UC colleges are best for physics, specifically theoretical physics?
