Perfection. That’s what it’s about. It’s those moments. When you can feel the perfection of creation. The beauty of physics, you know, the wonder of mathematics. The elation of action and reaction, and that is the kind of perfection that I want to be connected to.

Lol, I don't even have Master's schools picked out yet, much less PhD. :lol: I mean, if you want to have that all figured out, more power to you, but I wouldn't say it's necessary. Also, make sure you're flexible, and don't let yourself be ruled by your lists.

Also, there are a lot more grad schools for engineering than biological anthropology/bioarchaeology so you have more places to look at.

:shock: I don't even know what classes I'm taking next quarter, let alone exactly what I'm going to do after graduation, especially let alone where I'll study...

As an FYI, Guava, people often times go to the same institution for their Masters and doctoral degrees because they go straight into a Ph.D program.
