Question about 5 year M.S. in physics

  1. Dec 12, 2008 #1
    Hi I found this forum about a week ago and really enjoy it.

    but anyway I would like to go to the University of Colorado and they offer a 5 year master program (in physics), if I wanted to get my PhD from say m.i.t. or the like, is the 5 year plan a viable option or would i be better of just getting my bachelors from c.u. and then completing the rest at the other school?

    appreciate the help

    The usual path is to go for a Ph.D. right after the BS. No real need to get an MS in your case.
