Do your best to get affiliated with a school that does work with the
government. E.g a school like carenegie mellon.  Once in, the government has
great work with cryptography, and from that I have heard from people who
work with the FBI etc, that this is the best place to learn.

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.

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
