Hi there, my fine-feathered physics friends, Caleb here. I'm researching undergraduate Engineering Physics programs in the States and wonder if y'all would lend me your opinions. I've done a good bit of invaluable searching here already but would like to add a small bit of specificity to the question of "Which school is best?" I'd like to concentrate on plasma physics and hopefully optics/photonics. I'll be a transfer student, and I have the GI bill, so my preference is for the best public or low-cost private university. Berkeley is out of the question, but I have no other caveats. What do you think?
