Do you know Good undergrad schools for Pure math and/or physics theory? Please Help. Hunting for colleges, I'm a definite pure math or theoretical physics major. To give you an idea of my academic standing: MIT would be a stretch, U Penn is a mid reach, Brown is a low reach, Northeastern is a match, Penn state and U Conn are safeties. So I need good school somewhere in this range, from low ivy(Brown, Dartmouth, cornell), to good public schools. I realize the obvious ones(MIT, UChicago, Princeton, Harvard), but these would also be far reaches except Uchicago. I've also heard Brown is good, U Penn is good, Penn state and Uconn are respectable, I included northeastern for a point of reference. Any advice is greatly appreciated :) !!
