My experimental research involves freshmen year of high school (which wasn't really experimental because I was writing script in MATLAB) and the last two years of high school (which I am not sure if I can even include on my application).

(Grae313, I know you have posted the ranking of physics dept couple of times on this forum, but lot of us here tend to agree that US news ranking may NOT be the right ranking of the Universities. I am curious to know what admissionprof think about this.)
I have been accepted from Wisc-Madison, now what type of school is this in condensed matter( theory or exp)? Is it top 10, top15, top 20 or NONE?

What do you think about Wisc-Madison in CM theory or exp? I'd appreciate your input. Thanks.

Is this true even for Experimental High Energy?
