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 a lot of research going on at the university. UMBC seems nice but I just don't 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 don't expect anyone to make a decision for me but any old comments you may have about the schools would be helpful.

UA pwns in astronomy and astrophysics. I've heard that it gets more NASA grants for space exploration than any other university...

What are you interested in anyway? Is there any way you could visit?

Currently I'm interested in everything from quantum mechanics to astrophysics. I really want to apply my physics to space exploration. The research is one of the reasons why UA sounds so appealing. I was thinking of visting but its a big trip so its take a lot of planning. I guess I was wondering if the physics department there is good as its research is? I don't want to sacrifice the education for research.

Maybe a better question would be to ask what things people really loved in there own college experience? Things that they thought were essential to there success or things that just made them love there school. Then maybe I could look for some of these important aspects in my choice.
