In for the long haul...

Dave will graduate from BYU's MBA program in just a few months. We can't believe how fast two years went by!! A graduate degree, however, will not be the end of school for us. Dave has decided to pursue a PhD, in preparation to eventually to do research and teach in conjunction with a business school.  A few months ago he applied to 11 different schools - Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Northwestern, NYU, Cornell, Duke, ASU, Texas, Washington, Utah, and UC-Berkely.

Right now we are in that wonderful period of waiting and wondering where we will spend the next five years of our life. As you can see, half the schools would take us out east, but we could also end up in Chicago, Texas, Arizona, California, Washington, or stay right here in Utah.


Dave has already been accepted to one school - HOORAY!! It is a huge huge relief to know that we will at least be going somewhere. We should start hearing back from the other schools (either yes or no) in the next six weeks. I can hardly wait!

I am sure it feels a bit stressful at the moment waiting for the yes/no answers, but this sounds like a fun adventure! All of your options look good to me. I think it would be fun to move somehwere new, but you might enjoy the more familiar west coast life. Congrats!
