I want to study Mathematics, but I also interested in theoretical physics a lot, so I am thinking of maybe focusing on math topics that could allow me to work in GR, BSM, QFT and such.

I know that UC Berkeley and Caltech are the polar opposites from a student experience standpoint - huge state school vs. small STEM-focused school, etc., but both of them are rated really high, like top 5, in the country for math. From an academic standpoint, does anyone have any advice on pros and cons? I am hopeful that I will get accepted at Princeton or Harvard, so I may have a few more decisions to make in the coming month but for now, I am try to choose between these two.

Thanks!
