I have a Master's degree in Physics and currently have PhD offers from the Purdue University (Department of Physics and Astronomy) and UIUC (Biophysics and Quantitative Biology Program). I am mainly interested in Computational Biophysics and Image Processing. How do the two programs compare in general? I am really confused and have to make a decision soon. Any help would be appreciated. How do the localities compare in general for people living off campus?
