The choice has come down to Univ. of Arizona or Univ. of Maryland Baltimore County. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on these schools. I live in Maryland so UA would be a hassle, but I think it is really cool school with a million things to do. It has many observatories in the area and alot of research going on at the university. UMBC seems nice but I just dont get as excited about it as do with UA, maybe its because I'm from MD. I like the idea of it being a research university. I am a physics major and want to get a astronomy minor or possbly double major. I dont expect anyone to make a decision for me but any old comments you may have about the schools would be helpful.
