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.

To realize a travel dream from Grade 10 Spanish class
So now that you know my plan for next year, you can find me…or avoid me, according to your preference. If there’s any way you could contribute to the realization of my Plan, I would very much appreciate your help!
Ready or not world, here I come!
