Which has a better condensed matter program? Rutgers has more faculty members and has great facilities, but Boston University is doing a lot of quality research and recently hired 3 new faculty, 2 in condensed matter. But Boston's physics department appears to be confined to one building, so I am not sure how much lab space they really have.
Can anyone with a better knowledge of either or both schools help me out? Also what is the department culture like in each?
