 Badgers are very highly respected, especially business Badgers in the business world. Look at some of the statistics, like the number of CEOs that have come out of UW–Madison. It just tells you that if that’s what you want, this is the school for you. It’s kind of awesome to officially say I’m a Badger. .

 It’s okay not to know what you want to do. It’s a big decision to make and it took me eight years to figure that out, but I’m here now. It’s never too late to go back to school.
