I am graduating from high school soon, in three days actually, and I need just a bit of advice on where I should go to school to be a Physics student. I live in Alabama and I'm in a position where I have to entirely pay for my college education, and because I did not do particularly well on the ACT, colleges aren't rushing to give me any money to attend their schools. I am pretty much stuck in state no matter what for my undergraduate education, and possibly will have to attend a CC. I am aware that Alabama is not famous for its rigorous academic institutions (though E.O. Wilson is from here!) and I am simply trying to get the best education possible. So does anyone have a suggestion on which Physics program is best within the state of Alabama?
