I'm an undergraduate senior right now, and I've been accepted to UCSB, UIUC, and UChicago. I Need to decide where to go by April 15. I'm interested in condensed matter, so my first inclination is that I would be crazy not to go to UIUC. But of course I'm going to visit them all in the next month or so, do the open house thing, talk to people, and make a decision. I just wanted to know if there is anyone on this forum who has any knowledge or experience about any of these three schools that might help me decide where to go. I'm interested in condensed matter, all my experience is in fluids/granular materials and I love it, but I want to look at other areas of research, too. I am sure that it's the experimental side that interests me, though.
