Maybe I won't see you at the UK flyout; lol.
20K in Iowa is a fortune!

Congrats!

Sounds like you got yourself a great funding package, there. Congratulations! Any ideas on what fields you would like to specialize in?

I want to specialize in Applied Micro/ Labor Econ. I think I would still rather go to Ohio State at this point, but hopefully this will be a foreshadowing of other decisions...What about you?

Primary are monetary and econometrics (time-series). Depending on where I get accepted, I'm hoping to add finance as either a write-off course, or an actual specialty if faculty in that field is available.
