Main Question or Discussion Point
I have been admitted to Berkeley and a couple of other UC schools for Ph.D. programs in physics, and I am concerned about how the budget crisis in California will impact these programs over the next few years. Berkeley, in particular, is still ranked very highly, but will this continue to be the case? Will there still be plenty of funding for research, equipment, top-notch faculty, etc.? Any input would be most appreciated, as I have other reasonably good admittances besides the UC's.
