Physics master program at Stony Brooks.

In summary, the speaker is a master's student in France who has applied to several PhD programs for the fall, with only acceptance from SUNY Stony Brook for a MA program without funding. They are wondering if this program is good, what the chances are for getting into a top university PhD program after one year at SUNY Stony Brook, and if a PhD at Stony Brook is equally as good as one from a top university for someone interested in Mathematical Physics. They also mention the possibility of finishing their master's at Ecole Normale Superieur in France before pursuing a PhD in the US and ask if this is the best option.

Hello!

I am a master student in France. With a good curriculum after a double undergraduate program between Brazil's best physics program and a France's top engeniering school. I applied to several PhD programs for this fall and the only acceptance I got was at SUNY Stony Brooks for a MA program without funding.
I would like to know different things: (1) if this program is actually good, (2) how are the changes of after one year in SUNY's MA to get to a top university PhD like Princeton, (3) or is a PhD at Stony Brooks equally well, for a student like me who aims at Mathematical Physics. (4) I have a second possibility, that would probably be to end my master in France at Ecole Normale Superieur - but after that I would really like to do a PhD in the US. Was it the best option?
Thanks a lot,


Aron
