    I got an undergraduate degree in physics years ago, but recently I've been thinking I'd like to try applying to grad school in the next year or two. The subject I'm most interested in studying is quantum computing and more general quantum information science, with an emphasis on the theoretical aspects rather than experiment...any suggestions on how I would go about researching which schools would have good programs for this?
