What does it take to be an anthropologist?

Basically I'm really interested in anthropology but I don't know much about what actually goes on in the field. I'd like to know all the details about:

College: how much it costs, how long it takes, etc.
Jobs: what you do with your skills, how much it pays, etc.

And any other things that you think would be helpful for me to know. I just want to find out if this is the best choice for me, because I really am fascinated with it and I want to know all about it so I know if it would be a good decision to get involved. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks. :D

all clear
I know some universities have things for their undergrads like archaeology and physical labs, but have you heard of anything in schools geared toward volunteer opportunities for the cultural students? I don't mean field school/exchange/internships, but places where the students can go in their own time and likely not for extra credit. I haven't got a clue what they would entail if they exist, but I want to know if they do.

it's all about the yip yips
I'm trying to find a school to do my third year (08-09) at for cultural anthro since my university does exchanges with a number of others abroad, and after over two hours of pounding on the table in exasperation and demanding my father to tell me what the heck "Umweltingenieurwissenschaften" means (I think that one scared him), I have a shortlist! And a few woes. This seemed like a good place to post my questions, so hopefully you'll be able to help.

For most of them, I'd like to know what the undergraduate experience is like for third year anthro students. I know that I probably won't get all schools covered here, but... who knows.

Sheffield has anthropology as a part of archaeology. I think I'd be able to take it with the amount of arch-specific courses I'm going to be taking this year, but since I'd like to focus on cultural, would that put me in trouble for coming back home for fourth year and needing to take cultural courses?
Bristol has anthropology and anthro/arch, though anthro seems like it has a small small number of students accepted - it was only around 147, I think. Is that a small department?
Copenhagen has anthro courses called things like "You think it's the end but it's just the beginning..." – IN ENGLISH! That pretty much sold me, but I'm really intimidated by the thought of going to a school where I don't know the native language. This might be my top choice.
Sydney has SOMETHING but I absolutely hated searching and it was annoying so I gave up.
Newcastle seems really preoccupied by death and destruction.
Deakin only looks like it has one class if anthro in third year, which I don't really get, so I think I missed something.

So again, if anybody has any information or experience with anthropology (preferably undergrad and cultural), it would be absolutely amazing if I could have your input.

Thank you!
