Carnegie Mellon vs. Tufts???
I was accepted into Carnegie Mellon college of Science for physics/astrophysics and into Tufts' Arts and Sciences for astrophysics as well. I feel that I like Carnegie Mellon's STEM focus and faculty better, but I'm unfamiliar with Pittsburgh. On the other hand, I'm more familiar with Tufts and the Boston area, and they gave me a research stipend and a scholarship that allows me to graduate debt-free. However, I don't think their astrophysics/physics department is as strong. Which one should I choose?4 replies
