It’s back to school time for kids again, back to lectures, books, and teachers dirty looks. I must be a kid again, because I’m going back to school too! This is the second week of the fall term, and two weeks into my graduate degree. I’m taking a Statistics class and an Economics class this term–both required. The great thing about required courses is that both tails of the distribution (ahh I’m using Stat) have to take them. It’s nice to be an outlier.
