    Congratulations!
    You guys are great. I am very impressed with your talents and northwestern education.
    Can you give some advice for a prospective student?
    What are excellent courses/professors in economics, biology, chemistry for a freshman? Or in general, what courses/professors from Weinberg would you recommend for an incoming student?
