I guess this a type question most of us are asking presently, so I thought I'd ask for some opinions.
I've got three offers that I am interested in currently (all for HEP-th): UPitt, UMass-Amherst and the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (in Paris ). UPitt is particularly strong in particle phenomenology (but not formal theory), and the project Ive been accepted into at Pierre and Marie Curie is on particle phono. On the other hand, UMass has a more theoretically oriented group who work on quantum gravity and things. I think I am oriented more towards mathematical physics than phenomenology, so I'm leaning towards UMass (even though Id be able to live in Paris if I did a PhD at UPMC).
However, Im also concerned about getting a good postdoc after the PhD and am wondering what the postdoc opportunities are like for more formal high energy theory as opposed to phenomenology?
Cheers, and congratulations to all those who have got offers (and hopefully those who haven't gotten offers will receive some soon).
