Hi Im an entering freshman going to Georgia Tech in the fall and I plan to major in physics. Now even though it is probably too early for me to decide this I want to specialize in Nuclear Physics, and of course get my Doctorate. Basically I plan to stay in school till I get my doctorate. Anyways, I was wondering, would it be helpful for me to seek a nuclear physicist and ask them about undergraduate research opportunities early on? And also, what would be some great schools to specialize in nuclear physics? I was wondering about MIT, but I'm not sure if this is just some generic thought that since they are MIT..they would of course have what I need. All of this is based off of the fact that I think all of the nuclear physicist here are Emeritus and im basically guessing that I wouldn't get a nuclear physicist as an advisor here, since I dont think there are many. Here are the questions again in case I digressed and lost you, I do that... 1. Should I seek a nuclear physicist on campus for Undergrad research opportunities? 2. What would be a great fit for grad school if I wanted to specialize in nuclear physics? 3. How great of a school is GaTech for physics in general, and Nuclear physics? Plus any other helpful advice you could give a budding freshman majoring in physics.
