If CMU = carnegie mellon, then I think u r comparing the US with a third world country and asking if you should go to a third world country or stay in the US for better life.
Of course go to a third world country ( I'm from one of that place 8) )

EDIT: I know, my post does not make any sense. sorry

department size does not matter when you consider the size of the student body

I would rather be at the beach than at a snow-ball fight

Well, if you were asking about pretty much any area of physics, then all these folks' "Caltech is teh roxxors!!11!" comments might be right. But since it's materials science, and Caltech and CMU's programs are ranked about equally, you're going to be deciding based on research you're interested in (and so size can matter, if it means more options), and the structure of the program, and all that.

But you got to the point of applying for and getting into two pretty good programs, so you must know this by now...
