    Greetings from the high plains of Kansas. All the colleges you listed are great places. Pick the one with better mentor professors in you chosen speciality, and second, the one that offers the greater benefit package for you.

    Thanks for your fast reply!
    It is extremely helpful to receive some opinions before to make any decision, especially if you are unable to visit every university or to attend teh open house,
    cheers!

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!

    I know someone from the GTech program. If she's an example of what they turn out, the school is a good choice.
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Hi!
    Thanks for your reply!
    Actually, I am leaning towards UNC Chapel Hill (i undertstand that it is considered the 3rd best graduate planning program in the US, isn't it?), but I have heard good comments about UMD and OSU.
    any other thought? any comment is more than welcome!
