I was admitted to both MIT and CalTech for 2014. I am still undecided for which school I will attend and I had a few questions.
My basic concern is not averages of students or anything, I truly want to know where I could get the best Math/Physics education. Who has better competitive teams, who has tougher curriculum, better professors, better research, more research opportunities, etc.
I know the two school quarrel all of the time, but what could CalTech offer me? I'm looking at opportunities from the top of the scale, not things like freshman experience or social experience but which school could I benefit the most from and have a successful career as a research scientist or mathematician.
Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it.
