Caltech was a pretty low quality place to go, it didn't really offer much in the way of a 'college experience'. The coursework was very rigorous, however, in many cases it seemed to emphasize covering more material instead of covering in great depth. I thought the core would give me a very solid foundation in math/physics but the classes seemed rushed and overall I think the coverage of the various fields was somewhat spotty.
