What are the good math or physics grad schools Texas

  1. Aug 24, 2014 #1
    I'm going to be applying to graduate programs this semester and would like to know which schools are good for a phd program.

    I need to get into a phd program because it was the original goal that i set out to get.

    I graduated with a double major in math and physics.

    Thank you.

    Which do you want to do? math or physics? what specific research topics interest you?

    Thanks for replying.

    Well that's honestly the hardest part about my future. I got my BS degree in both fields and both of them are tugging at me from opposite ends.

    I like math because I can CLEARLY see what's going on and have some deep level of understanding. However physics is science and I like science.

    In my degree it was fun to do both because when math got a little dull physics spiced it up. I'm not asking for you to make my decision, but I did enjoy both.

    I really liked topology in math and advanced cal was fun. For physics I really liked the Quantum class I took.

    I'm actually thinking of applying to some math programs and then some physics programs. Just to see who accepts me. I have my GRE Subject scores. If you want them I'll try and find them and post them.

    The best grad schools for physics in Texas are the same as the best grad schools in Texas. I would pick UT-Austin, A&M, and Rice.

    Thank you. Rice and the University of Houston are close by and I plan on setting up an appointment to talk about enrolling as well as enrolling itself!
