I am an international student.
Now I got two offers
Phys@BU and Phys@Rutgers
But I do not know how to choose.
I want to study condensed matter experiment and plan to enter the industry after leaving school.
Boston is a big city and the life there would be convenient and safe. Moreover there would be a lot of job opportunities.
But the rank in physics of BU is just 30+
Rutgers has a higher rank in physics of 20+, and especially in condensed matter physics, Rutger is among the top 20.
But New Brunswick is a small city, and someone told me that the security situation there is not good.
So which one should I choose?
