Have you any idea what your preferred research area will be? Do you find
youself quoting the some authors more than others, and do you know where
they teach? Physical anthropology is still broad, I did some research last year

choice would have been U. Michigan, followed closely by Emory, U. New Mexico,
and Harvard.
Does physical anthropology mean bones and digs for you - forensic work, medical,
etc.? What about your philisophical orientation towards the field as a whole?
Answer these questions, and you'll have the profile of the school you're looking for.
Maybe then a prof. who just happens to be one of your favorite authors might
