Dartmouth has a physics department if you can pull the grades to get into an Ivy League school

If Dartmouth is out of your ballpark (around 6% of applicants are admitted, and tuition + room/board/etc is more than $50k/year), UNH at Durham also has well-regarded science and engineering programs.  UNH is moderately selective (around 65% of applicants are admitted) and pretty expensive for a state school (tuition + room/board/etc approaching $25k/year for in-state, $40k for out-of-state).

At those prices, I'd give some consideration to finding a good community college in NH for the first two years of a 4-year BS/BA program.  You could save a huge amount over the first two years, plus reap the benefits of lower in-state tuition should you decide to continue on at UNH.

P.S. I am not under 21.

Are there any good internet colleges?
50K is just a little, by 45k, too much.
I have heard that internet only colleges are bad but internet as well as local might be good.
Is MIT's open courseware good?

I also want similar courses.
