Hi everyone,

I'm new here so let me know if someone has covered this. A quick search didn't reveal any matches.

I've been working for the past 5 years and have been investing in retirement at about 15%. I'm under 30, so my allocation is mostly in equities (about an 80/20 split). I'm going to grad school next year, probably for a looong time (7 years), after which I plan to try to be a professor. I'm not sure what to do about my retirement. Should I let it sit where it is (It's actually in a 403b, because I currently work for the university I'm going to attend, so I think I can keep it there) or is there something I can do to optimize its earnings while I can't make contributions?
