The Big Name or Big Bucks Plan

People have been wondering what my decision regarding LSE vs. Carleton is (including a surprise inquiry from Ann Arbor, Michigan). So today, I am proud to table my Big Name or Big Bucks Plan 2011-12. Consider this The Reports on Plans and Priority for the Department of Rose.

Despite your overwhelming support for me to attend LSE (as well as a random suggestion that I go to Tatooine instead – a fictional planet in Star Wars…I suppose it’s better than hell), I decided to claim my Ontario Graduate Scholarship and the exchange spot I won at Sciences Po, thus obtaining my MA in Public Administration from Carleton by summer 2012.
