UCs vs EPFL physics

  1. Feb 14, 2012 #1
    Hello,

    I am currently a senior in a Swiss high school (french region) and i have applied to five University of Californias (UCSB, UCSC, UCSD, UCLA, UCI, UC Davis) and to the EPFL in Lausanne for physics.

    I was wondering if anybody could give me some insight on the differences between them concerning the manner of teaching, difficulty of study, general environment, etc...
    Would there be more advantages in one or the other for undergraduate studies?
    Although the EPFL is three years of study (bachelor) compared to 4 (UCs), i have heard it may be more challenging in the first year? Would it therefore be better to go into a 4 year program which could be more 'gradual' or 'accomodating'?

    Thanks for any advice/info you might have!

    Make a decision once you get some acceptance letters...
