I posted a question here once before, as my son was beginning the college application process. Now that the decisions have arrived, it appears that he will likely be deciding between Oberlin and Macalester. From what I can discern, the schools are very close in reputation as a general matter, but I can't tell how their physics departments compare. Does anyone have an opinion about their physics programs specifically? Also, my son thinks he may eventually want to pursue astrophysics. Is that a reason to favor either school? Thanks.
