Hello everyone, I don't know if i should be even stressing about what undergraduate school to attend but i don't know whether to choose UBC or SFU. i am interested in theoretical physics, astrophysics/cosmology. i have broken down the pros and cons of each but still i'm stuck in between. I am leaning a LITTLE more to SFU but UBC is very attractive to me as well. SFU - 5-10 minute commute UBC - 75 - 100 minute commute SFU - smaller based classes UBC - bigger classes BUT Carl Wieman nobel prize winner has been working on a new education approach http://www.cwsei.ubc.ca/ this is really attractive SFU - i feel more comfortable on campus ( i have visited both many many times ) UBC - i feel a small and insignificant SFU - no astronomy undergrad program BUT raising money to build an observatory UBC - their program IS physics and astronomy SFU - undergrad research oppurtunities "ADOPT-A-PHYSICISTS" first year undergrads get to work on research projects http://www.physics.sfu.ca/teaching/ugrad/working/research_opportunities/adopt-a-physicist [Broken] UBC - none except NSERC BUT SFU also has it too SFU - less theoretical physics professors UBC - a LOT more ( i don't know if it matters for undergrad students or not ) the main reason i would choose SFU over UBC is because i feel A LOT more comfortable on campus but i can adapt if i must. Also, the commute is a huge difference. I am hoping to get into Perimeter Institute's masters program and i don't know which school would be better or if it even matters. in Mclean's magazine SFU is ranked i think 1st for undergraduate programs and UBC is ranked i THINK top 3 schools in general. any advice would be great! thanks a lot!
