Hello everyone, I'm new here and am hoping you could give me a hand with my decision. I highly doubt this is deserving of its own thread, but I would really appreciate the help. I plan to major in physics, or at least a subject in a similar vein. I've narrowed my choice down to two schools, Carnegie Mellon and Rensselaer PI. In a strictly financial sense, they're relatively equal, but Rensselaer does have a slight edge. Could anyone please shed any insight on which would be the better choice?

Thank you for any information.

I got accepted to RPI and turned it down. If you look at their physics department you will notice only 22 professors. Quite a few of those professors are from foreign countries. With that in mind I decided no. RPI does give a very nice financial aid package however. RPI is more engineering than pure science oriented.

I don't know much about Carnegie Mellon, except that they have a good Comp Sci program.

I wound up choosing UT for myself next year.
