Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi guys,

I am ready to apply for PhD and one of my targets is STONY Brook (actually the only one in the USA since it wont require me to take any tests).

Background:

a) Undergrad at Lancaster University, BSc Theo. Physics
b) Master's degree in Theo. Physics UAM/IFT in Madrid under scholarship.

I am a final year master's student working on Holographic Renormalization for non-conformal branes (my thesis) and taking courses like d=2 conformal field theory, string theory, standard model 2 (anomalies, 2 loop processes, neutrinos), quantum field theory 3 (non-pertub. stuff), etc.

I have had courses in AdS/CFT, Holographic Renorm. etc in the Gauge/Gravity duality workshop in Korea this summer, I was provided full funding to attend a similar workshop in Cambridge a while ago, I ll go to the String Winter School at CERN and other stuff. Also, I will take a course in Black Hole information, fast scrumblers and firewalls
.

Question:

How good school is STONY Brook in general? String-wise and its reputation in the theo physics community as well. The Yang Institute for Theo. Physics? I know there work guys like M. Douglas. Job perpectives? I also might have an offer from UBC in Vancouver String Group, and thinking for Durham, Oxford, Amsterdam (impossible people say) and maybe Edinbourgh.

Although I am doing gauge/gravity duality now, I am interested in all aspects of string theory.

Please opinions!!! Or any other proposals! Thanks a lot guys!
