There are a lot of great physics school in Texas. UT, UTD, A&M, and rice are at very high standard. UTD's physics department is undergoing an expansion for its nano-tech research. You shouldn't stay at the same school as your undergraduate degree. One of the reason is that you should go to other school which is best fit your interest. The other reason is that by the time you finish your undergrad, you should have learnt what your undergrad school can offer, then it would be better go go somewhere else and get what other school can offer.I'm still working on my BS Physics. So, it might be better for me to shoot directly for the Ph.D after my BS? Here are the requirements for Ph.D at the university I plan on attending:
fyi, i graduated from some school in texas. I might be able to give you some opinion around texas.
And yes, you should just go straight to PhD if you can. However you have to be very good at undergrad level.
