I'm also considering OSU. I think the ranking of OSU is actually better than Duke. Student outcomes also look better. If you haven't looked at PhD.org rankings already. http://graduate-school.phds.org/rankings/physics/program/ranking/duke/2711 There is a high crime rate in Columbus but I don't think that will be an issue in the area near the uni, where you will probably be living. As far as graduate stipend weighted for cost of living, Duke is near the top with OSU close behind. http://www.physicsgrad.com/grad-student-stipends-university

Hi janisper116, thank you so much for your information on graduate stipends. And yes, the student outcomes at OSU seems much better than Duke. By the way, which subarea are you gonna study? :D

I want to do HEP. Looking at a couple of other places and waitlisted a couple of places. Got a good impression of the department when I visited though.
