Hello, I going to apply for the graduate Physics program of these universities. (I'm not a US citizen) University of New Mexico. University of Nebraska–Lincoln. My research interest are Material Physics and BioPhysics. I went through the department web sites and AIP web site(http://www.aip.org/statistics/) to gather information. Still I cant conclude which one is suit for me. Some times I felt University of Nebraska has more reputation than University of New Mexico. However University of New Mexico also has lots of National labs facilities!!! Please give me your valuable ideas about the physics program of above universites. Thanks.
