I'm a high school senior looking into colleges and I'm having trouble picking out good choices for physics programs. I live in Chicago and I'm looking into schools around the Midwest. My record ACT:32 GPA: 94.2 (My school is weird and they don't like the 4.0 scale) My course load is pretty rigorous. In math I've taken algebra I through precalc at my school with Calc I over the summer at my cc (I got a B) and Calc II and III. This year I'll being taking 4 AP classes including chem. I've taken 2 already (they were just history though). My EC's are lackluster though. UIUC and UChicago are obvious picks, but what other schools are there which have a good physics program?
