      are no restrictions on eligibility - we want the best

      I will be at the SAA in New Orleans, and will be very happy
      to arrange an informal meeting with anyone who might be
      interested in applying. Drop me an email in advance of
      the conference, if possible - it will make scheduling a
      time that little bit easier.
