I will be finishing up my AA in May 2014 and looking to transfer to either Florida State University or University of Florida. In the beginning of last year, I had heard that as far as a physics major, FSU was superior. They were not only the best for physics in Florida, but in the entire southeast region of the US. However, not too long ago, UF took on a new project called the "Quantum Theory Project," which upped their recognition and physics funding. So, FSU has had a much larger budget for their physics department for quite some time, but is a less recognized university overall. UF is a far more well recognized university overall, but has only recently stepped up their physics department. I'd like to think either one should be alright, but I was wondering if anyone else around here might know? From their websites and people I've talked to so far, both seem like they have good points and bad, but I can't figure out for sure which one is better?
