I'll be transferring to a University within the year to finish my Physics Degree. I've compared the classes of several universities in Illinois (UIUC, UIC, IIT to name a few) and the one that stands out the most is IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology, not Indian :P ). They have a required Instrumentation Lab, Computational Physics, Computational Science, and an interprofessional project. They also have the standard Advanced Physics Labs 1 and 2 that many universities have. These classes aren't in the curriculum of the other universities I have looked at. This also gets rid of some of the need to get a Computer Science Minor, which I was planning on getting. IIT doesn't offer many scientific minors for some reason though sadly. Will having those extra classes up my chances to get into a better university than if I went to UIUC or something?
