My name is Andrew Ryan. I am a freshman in the Carlson School of Management. In choosing a school, I really only considered the University of Wisconsin – Madison and the Carlson School. I chose the Carlson School because I liked the idea of being admitted as a freshman whereas at Madison you are admitted to the business program during junior year. I also liked the Minneapolis location. I live in Eagan, which is only 25 minutes from campus so it is very convenient coming to the University. Currently I plan on majoring in finance and accounting. My two biggest hobbies are golf and playing cards.
