    If I did, it was an accident. I only quoted you and disagreed to offer an alternative perspective that people rarely hear (the idea that taking classes while working full-time can be risky).

It is not easy to work a full-time job that is more intellectually intensive while also learning about Analysis.
    I agree with this.

    There is no reason you cannot get acceptances to one or more of these programs. RA work or an MA may help. You may also want to consider degrees (MS/PhD) in Ag Econ, based on your interests.

    Thank you to all, lots of great advice in here. Definitely considering some Ag Econ programs, and applying to some RAs as well. To @ahududu, not looking to take Analysis right for some reasons above (full time job etc), as well as I'll be sending in applications this Fall, so wouldn't be on a transcript unless I took it this Summer. Thanks again for the discussion!
