Would you mind telling me how things went, what your opinions were, praises, concerns, and so forth? I want to live vicariously through your weekend! I have a very favorable view of the school and the area, but I want to be sure, and any insider's information would help.

My field of interest is Nuclear Experiment or Particle Experiment. Obviously, for NEx, UW really can't be beaten. For PEx, I'm not sure exactly where they fit. The other choice I have is UCSC. While not as highly ranked, I enjoyed my visit there, and they offered me a chance to start some summer research, with the offer of later joining ATLAS. That's exciting, but my heart lies with UW, and I had really been waiting for this acceptance since that's what I had been trying so hard to get. SCIPP seems to be pretty good for PEx, though I don't exactly know where they rank with respect to UW. Santa Cruz was beautiful, but I still like Seattle better. I also like the facilities at UW about 20 times more. It's gorgeous there. Ultimately, I think I will choose UW, but I wanted some feedback from you all, though it seems that you're all theorists!
Nonetheless, if any of you feel strongly against choosing UW over UCSC, I'd truly appreciate your saying so!
