Which School to Choose?

  1. Mar 30, 2009 #1
    OK. Here's my issue. I want to study physics as an undergrad. I applied to some schools that I believe have strong physics programs (Harvard, Princeton, Penn), and I have a fairly strong application. But, to be a pessimist, let's assume I don't get into any of those schools. I have been accepted to Boston College, Wake Forest, Villanova, and Furman. All else being equal, which school would get the most respect on an application to a graduate program in a few years (assuming I do well)? And why?

    Where you went as an undergrad doesn't matter very much in grad school admissions. As long as you have an opportunity to do research as an undergrad, you ought to be fine.
