Since you want to stay in the area, I can't think of a better
place for you than the med. and Byz. studies program at Catholic
University. Be aware, though, that it's going to be shockingly
expensive, and the program has no TA's. It's going to be loans,
loans, and more loans for you, and deuced few prospects when you
leave with your degree.

Economic considerations aside, though, it's a great place. The
library, though dilapidated, has excellent holdings. We've got
some of the sharpest people I know of in the fields of Latin,
Arthurian studies, theology, canon law, Old English, Icelandic,
econ. history, philosophy, and Greek.
