Well I finally got all my offers in, and made a decision!  I will be attending University of Minnesota...School of Public Health.  So count me among the anthropologist that are in Health Services Research.  I'll still see some of you at SFAA I'm sure!

Hey,

anyone going to Hopkins?

I just got off the waitlist yesterday, which was unexpected. And now I am finding myself suddednly having to make this big decision between England (the London School of Economics&Oxford) and the USA (Hopkins), which are two different systems and different lives. But both are great fits.

 

So I was wondering if anyone had any input at all with regards to academics, lifestyle etc. I have never been to Baltimore and I am feeling a little like I have to make a blind decision very quickly. 

 

Mwaaaah

Are you going to be working with Dr. Turner? If you are, she's great! I took a class with her, and it was super clear and interesting. I also had a melt-down in class once (due to personal reasons), and she took me in and was very caring and nice.

I'm sure you'll love it. Atlanta is fantastic too!

Yeah I will be! She'll be my advisor for the MA and she was my friend's as well who just completed the MA. I've only heard good things about her, so I'm wicked stoked. Plus she's from Mass so we'll have another thing to bond over haha
