UCL or UT Austin

I'm a math major and I was accepted to both of these schools. It's a huge plus for me that at UCL you ONLY study math, but I can't decide which school to go to!

Any advice or thoughts? Price is almost the same(comparing 3yrs to 4yrs).

You are talking about undergrad, right? You should be getting more out of your education than just Math. (Like Physics! )

At UCL I have 1 elective course each year in an outside field(but math related): including Physics! So its like 90% math 10% physics/econ/wtvr.

But its still way less than UT where I could take tons of non-math courses or even double major in physics or CS

What does "UCL" stand for? I first thought it was "UCLA"!
