I'm interested in computational astrophysics, not instrumentation or observation at all. Arizona is obviously highly-ranked in astro, but I don't like the location at all. Theres about 1-2 profs I'd like to work with, and I already emailed one of them to find that out that he plans to have an opening in his research group. He also has produced alot of publications in the past few years
For Maryland, the location is much better, and theres 2-3 profs I'd like to work with, but its ranked pretty low since those profs have produced far fewer publications than the prof I mentioned earlier.
Since I wasn't sure between Astro vs Physics, I've only applied to Texas Austin and Washington so far for Astro.
Which school do you guys think I should apply to?
Maryland is a better location? I took Maryland off of my list because of the location!
