Hi everyone. I am pursuing a career in astrophysics research and was accepted into UCSB and UCSC as a transfer student. I am leaning towards entering the UCSC astrophysics program, but am also considering going into UCSB as a physics major and doing minor work on astrophysics. Are both options equally viable, in terms of availability of undergrad research and as pathways to graduate school? Are there factors I may not have considered? Also, there is some risk factor in choosing to go to UCSC, because they have a minimum GPA requirement for lower division physics courses I may have to appeal to meet. Thanks in advance.
