thewonderyears Posted April 14, 2010 Share Posted April 14, 2010 Hi all, I just found this forum today! I got accepted to the University of Pennsylvania and Northwestern. My interests are gender, religion, and cross-national studies. I like both quantitative and qualitative methods, but tend to lean toward qualitative because I love to blur the line between Sociology and Anthropology. Anyone have insight about these choices? I posted a general call for help in the other sections, but here is a more nuanced version of the problem: I visited NW and really liked it. A lot. But, it's very far from my whole support network, including all my friends, family, and boyfriend. I don't know anyone in Chicago, and am not someone who tends to adjust easily. I'm worried about the distance and the weather. Penn, on the other hand, is closer to home and closer to my friends scattered along the east coast. The thing is, they are way less qualitative and from what I've seen so far, maybe less warm & fuzzy? Also, it seems like they have less of an emphasis on publishing, which I know is super important in grad school. What do you guys think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
