Hi, All!!

Looking for a little help here. This decision to apply came on me like a whirlwind, but I jumped in and caught the tailwinds of a new path. I have always known that I wanted to help people and I thought I wanted to pull people from the river on the micro level, but now I know I want to work through the world through the Micro, Mezzo, and Macro. I never thought that I would have this chance, even in my wildest dreams, that any of my experiences would bring me to a point where I could possibly affect change on a greater level. 

That low expectation was shattered the day I heard the sound, a noise I know well, the noise of my email alerting me to a new message. This message seemed to be hand typed, it came from the social work side of a Joint Ph.D. in Social Work and Anthropology, telling me that they were reviewing my application and asked if I could visit, giving me many choices in time and date. I couldn't believe it, there are only two programs in the Nation that offer a joint program as such. My world was in a spin, I was in shock and excitement I didn't know what to do. I told everybody I knew and wanted to run in circles, but the adrenaline soon wore off and I realized I had no idea what I was doing. I spent all of the time, four months actually, perfecting my application not really thinking about what came next. 

Now current me is looking both ways, at the past and at the future but is a little lost. I was in a master's program, one that didn't fit well and never had a formal interview so now I don't now what to do. Here I am at the other end of my keyboard, looking for guidance and help, from those who may have gone before me in Anthropology, Social Work or both. I don't know what to ask, nor do I know what to say this interview process is new to me. 

If anybody could help, it's mean a lot to a random guy on the internet.
