If I get accepted into UT-Austin, would it be worth it to move there rather than stay

at home and go to the University of Houston for Physics?

It depends. How do you feel about UT-Austin? I really don't want to say much, because I am graduating from UT-Austin this May. I'm obviously bias. For me, it was the right choice. I'm from Houston and was tempted by UH too.

What are key factors for you in picking a college?

Mine were location, academics, and the people there. Austin seemed like the better choice but I wouldn't have had a problem with UH either.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I would move from Houston to Austin even if I didn't get accepted to UT.

UT Austin is a good department. I don't know as much about Houston.
