I have been accepted to both Oregon State University and OSU's Honor College and currently in decision between OSU and the University of Washington. I have been researching about the different physics programs at the schools and from what I have been able to tell UW have a fairly tradition styled Physics program. When I looked at OSU's Physics program I saw that they take an nontraditional approach to teaching physics, or at least for some of the classes. My question is how is OSU's physics programmed viewed by the physics community, grad schools, and companies? Is it viewed any differently than any other schools teaching?
