Hello again,

Yet another (silly?) question.

Suppose you are interested in a given area of interest (let's say Quantum Information).

You cannot go to top 30, so we are talking about anything else. Also I am referring to

M.Sc degree, if it matters.

Will you choose:

A) a school that does not have a "big" research group in your specific area of interest; there

are only one or two professors doing some projects in your specific area of interest, or

B) a school that have a "big" research group but in a closely related area to your interests

(so in this example, say "quantum optics"). There are at least 4 prof. and a couple of postdoctors

and graduate students in the group; it's really a "big group".

But frankly, why should you be bothered by how many professors are there in your

area of interest; after all you are going to do your thesis with only one supervisor, don't you?

Thanks for answering both my questions!
