I'm currently studying pre-IB, which means that two years later I should have graduated from secondary school. Physics and English are my favorite subjects (science and English have always been my favorites), and I want to study physics in university somewhere in the States. I'm not really sure about this, but I think I want to become a physicist (I'm more interested in understanding why things work than in how things work). I honestly don't know how to choose a good university. Most of the university websites I've visited tell me the same thing: we've got one of the leading physics departments in the world, we give a lot of attention to undergraduates, we've got professors who are the best in the field...also I don't know of many people who study physics in university (I'll ask my physics teacher this week). Can you guys maybe offer some advice? Thanks in advance!
