Hi! I am transferring to a 4 year college next year and I am having a dilemma about which school I should go to. My choices are Loyola College in Maryland or UM-Baltimore County. I was wondering if there are any disadvantages to going to a liberal arts college for physics. Loyola doesnt have the reputation in the sciences that UMBC has, but does that matter. I was thinking that the personal attention, and small class would be better that you get from a small private school. I was just wondering if anybody would look down on somebody for having a physics degree from liberal arts school. Their both good schools and I'm sure I would be happy going to either one. But I just wanted to see if anyone had a opinion on State vs Private Liberal Arts schools.
