I am a transfer sophomore from China. I have accepted to these four universities. I major in physics. BU accepted me in college of engineering. I am making the decision now. I would like to see some opinion from you! Thank you!

    It really depends on what you're looking for. All these schools have excellent science.

    BU is a private college with many students in the heart of Boston.

    College Park: A large, lovely university with an excellent reputation is a suburb near Washington, DC.

    Mt. Holyoke: A small women's college in MA. Very supportive atmosphere.

    Stony Brook: An up and coming research university on LI. Stony Brook has a large Chinese population and a Chinese grocery close by. It is also within 1 1/2 hours from NYC on the train whose station is right on campus.

    Thank you mythmom!
    I prefer MHC. My situation now maybe a little complicated. I have talked to physics professor in Stony Brook. After he see my course description, he suggested me to take a few 400 level course and I can get the degree. I don't know what's in BU and College Park. At MHC, the advisor told me study in the class of 2011.

    I don't know which is better, just study maybe one year or spend three years in MHC. Which could do better to my future development? I mean to find good job or apply for excellent graduate school.

    And I also want to know how many students find job directly when graduate from MHC?

    Waht's more I am still a little worried about women college. What do you feel?

    haha, a lot questions, thank everybody
