NC State vs Chapel Hill for undergraduate

  1. Dec 5, 2004 #1
    Right now I'm an undergraduate (first year student) studying physics and computer science at NC State University. This is quite an ugly, unfriendly school and I'm strongly considering transferring to Carolina. Does anybody have any opinions on UNC's physics and/or computer science curricula vs NCSU's? The only reason I am at NCSU is because I feel like they have such better departments in both subjects as to warrant staying here. Any suggestions?

    I know that UNC has a way better Graduate Level Computer Science program than NC State, and overall, it's among the top programs in the country. I would expect their undergrad program to be better as well.

    As far as Physics is concerned, State might be marginally better, but not exceptionally.
