Okay i guess i am a bit confused now ! my research interest is in cosmology and theoretical astro (wouldn't mind exp too). I am an international student and was planning to apply to NC state as a safety. now I am not sure as to which is better in astro - chapel hill one or the raleigh one. can any domestic student please help me regarding these questions ?
1) which is better in cosmology/astro among those two (judging by the website i would say chapel hill ? )
2) which is well reputed/recognized ? ( i know this is by no means a criteria to select a school asking just for info!)
2)which has good intake ratio ? ( as i am an international) (or) which is more safe to apply ?
3) which has better living conditions (like better campus and stuff )
facing hard time not to personally go there and see how the campus is *the disadvantage of being international applicant* !
Thanks a bunch !
