How's physics at Columbia? It seems that Cornell has a more well known physics program, and there's not much said about Columbia. And what about physics at Brandeis and at Brown? Also, what are my chances for an awesome grad school going to a school like Brandeis that isn't ivy? I'm not sure what to do. Brandeis is attractive because they gave me a highly prestigious scholarship with a lot of money, but again the other ivys are tempting.
