Good luck OP's wife (and OP of course).

I'm fairly familiar with Wyoming since it is adjacent to Colorado. I can tell you with certainty that the long and harsh winter in Wyoming is actually kinder than the winter in Iowa due to the elevation bringing stronger sunshine in Wyoming. Less atmospheric screening of the rays overhead results in stronger rays reaching the ground. UofI is a pretty good college though. Just make sure you are in before you move. They heavily recruit people with no intent to accept them because rejecting applicants raises their ranking. They pulled that with me when I was younger. Once I got some experience and stomped on the GMATs they really did want me. You can guess who rejected their offer

Aside from an unethical ranking system, they really do have an abundance of excellent faculty and the degrees gain a wider area of acceptance than most.
