I'm in my last semester of my Nuclear Engineering B.S. at Michigan and looking at M.S. programs. The main schools I'm looking at are University of Michigan (already applied), NC State (already applied), University of Tennessee (accepted upon receipt of degree confirmation, final marks, and official transcript), Oregon State (will apply), and South Carolina (will apply). I have research interest in core modeling and design (Work with Hitachi RBWR Burner, know CASMO, Serpent, PARCS, PATHS) and was wondering if anyone could offer insight into the faculty, facilities, work with national labs, funding, etc., of the listed schools pertaining to my research interests. I have done my own research on these universities and talked with some faculty, but any additional insight would be greatly appreciated. I'll be taking my decision down to the deadline and want to make the best choice I can. Thank you for your time reading this wall of text.
