Hi PF, As I'm reading more about graduate school, its becoming clear to me that ranking graduate schools as "good" or "bad" is too broad and naive- that its much more fruitful to evaluate grad schools by specific sub departments within the Physics departments. But I have no idea how to do this. For example, say I want to go into HEP, or biophysics, or even string theory, how do I find graduate programs that have strong interest in the same fields? This is much more specific than a vague metric of what a "good" school is (such as what USNWR may use) but I don't want to have to mine all of academia and do the sorting myself as to which departments are most productive in what fields...that could take an obscene amount of time. Any place that has already done this for me?
