You can always Google "top universities for physics" or some variation of that.
Usually though, when you're looking for a university for graduate school, it's important to be thinking about what particular sub-field you're interested in. General rankings, even ones that are subject-specific, are based on metrics that may or may not be important to you as a student. General opinions, are also of limited value when someone doesn't know you or your particular circumstances and interests. This is often why it's a good idea to talk about this with professors that you know and who know you.
Sorry this has taken a few days. I'm from Florida. It is easy to google search and find top universities but I was wondering about a "good" university that doesn't have all of the excess requirements that top universities have. In terms of subfields I'm not entirely sure yet but astrophysics is a possibility.
I guess what I mean to say is "strict" or something like this. By excess, I meant higher GRE scores, higher GPA, etc. (for example when comparing Harvard to a decent university in Connecticut it is obvious that my chances of getting into this school in Connecticut is by default easier). I don't mean to rephrase my question though because my goal is not to find a school that is easy to get into. My goal is to find a decent school with a good reputation and a good program which is not a top school. There are hundreds of these schools but I figured I'd ask the commonfolk if any came to mind. I'm currently attending Florida State University which is in the top 60 schools (I think)
I went where they offered me the best compensation. It did not hurt that it was a beautiful campus filled with many good looking women and friendly folks and I was very well treated generally .
I suppose the thing I missed most was having only a couple of folks among my physics student peers who were better (IMHO) than I at physics. Of course one ended up healing the Hubble, so that was fun. And one good friend was on the Forbes 400 list for a while. And I got to teach a lot, formally and informally.
It worked out well for me, but one never knows about roads not taken!
