   Ah, but you all seem to ignore the fact that I'm going to school in Northern Maine.  We don't exactly have the 
connections to any sort of security jobs on campus that a school in say, civilization, might have.

Why not consider working in the "real world" for a bit before you decide on
your choice of graduate study?  That would give you a better feel for what
you want to do with your life and thus drive a better more informed
decision
on graduate school.  You could easily jump into graduate school and study a
field that turns out is not all that interesting to you later.

Subject: Graduate School Advice



Greetings,

I've been lurking around the bugtraq list for quite a while and in this
time
I've found that I was indeed correct in my assumption that my interest in
computer science lay within the world of security assessments and
cryptology.  As I will be
graduating with a degree in mathematics in December, I've realized that
I've
put off my research into graduate programs in New England and in the OR, WA
area perhaps a bit too long.  This being said, I'm hoping that a few of you
who have 'made it'
in these fields could impart unto me a bit of advice about various schools
and programs in these regions that I might look into.  If this message is
too off-topic, I apologize, however I could not think of a better forum
within which to ask for such
advice, the professors at my university are a bit unhelpful.  A few of the
schools I'm considering include:  UW, Portland State, UMass Amherst, SUNY
Stony Brook, MIT, Northeastern, UC Boulder, Boston University, and my home
university of UMaine
(where I'd probably stay within the m
athematics department and work with those specializing in number theory).

My thanks in advance,
Justin Bronder
