Where did you get information about graduate school options? What would be the best way for our current students to find information about their options?
I received the information from UWEC economics faculty.
I think this would continue to be a good way for the current students to obtain information about their options.

What advice would you give current students about courses they should take at UWEC before graduation if they're planning to enter a graduate program like yours?
Take more math/statistics classes.

What advice would you give current students about other preparation they should complete before graduation if they're planning to enter a graduate program like yours?
Independent research studies are helpful.

What were the biggest challenges you faced in your first year of graduate studies? Do you feel that your years at UWEC prepared you well to face these challenges?
I think UWEC prepared me well for the graduate school

What were the most important textbooks you used in your first year of graduate studies?
Econometrics books by Greene, Maddala, and Wooldridge. I still use these books at work.
Microeconomic and macroeconomic texts were prepared by the faculty.
