Hello all, I am a rising sophomore at Appalachian State University, but have come to realize that the school is not for me. I have decided to transfer to ECU, which is much closer to home, for several reasons. Although ECU is a pretty good school (from what I've seen), it does have a reputation as being a huge party school. If I were to graduate with a BS in both physics and mathematics, with a near 4.0gpa, and a good GRE score, would a top 10-20 physics grad school be out of the question? Or would my choice of ECU really mess things up for me? I want a good grad school RELATIVELY close to home (NC), so I am looking at both Maryland and Columbia as potential opportunities. BTW, I do a lot of reading outside of class, am currently watching the MIT lectures on youtube, try to learn my math courses before I take them, etc. I also do little math projects occasionally to practice seeing the world in "math"...I am a serious student and will probably do well on my GRE's. I just need to know if my choice of undergrad, alone, will mess things up. Thanks.
