Pure Math program opinions - Aberdeen/Edinburgh Watch
From what I've seen in statistics and rankings, I've got the impression that Aberdeen has a stronger math program, even though Edinburgh has a better 'overall' status. What do you think?
P.S. Actually I have applied for 'Math and Music' in Edinburgh, which is essentially the same as pure math, but with few music courses.
The Math program in Aberdeen is on #17, while the one in Edinburgh is on #29 (according to The Guardian). I have the suspicion that people might see Edinburgh as better for math only because it has a higher 'overall' rank (#19 vs #43) and is more historically prestigious. Any thoughts on that?
