Does it matter where you get your BS in physics? I'm going to a not-so-known university and I don't really like the physics program mainly because it doesn't exist anymore. It is located in Texas and they have shutdown some of the undergrad programs here because some universities are not graduating enough students. Also, it is in the middle of a huge transition. It is merging with another university and I'm feeling unsure about getting my BS there because once the new university is put together I'll get a BS from a university nobody even knows about. There are some perks. For example, we have like 4 physics professors that earned PhD's at cal-tech. One or two them were had Kip Thorne as their doctoral advisor and one of them even has his own theorem and supposedly he's one of the top physicist in the US. The professors and graduate students have access to the ARCC. I want to get some opinions because I applied to UT Austin and I'm not sure if I should transfer if I get accepted. I have a 3.588 GPA at the moment and how hard it will be to get a GPA like that at UT considering I will taking much harder courses. I ask this because I plan to go to grad school. Any opinions, advice, or recommendations?
