Thank you for fearlessly reporting on the jobs taken by recent Princeton graduates in 2010 (Campus Notebook, Nov. 17). According to the report, 61.5 percent took jobs in financial services or services/consulting. So after receiving (arguably) the best education in the United States, they chose to follow in the footsteps of those who have wrecked our economy and now are laughing at the rest of us — while they sip champagne in the Hamptons. Princeton in the nation’s service? That’s so “greatest generation”! I can find better causes for my charitable dollars.
Editor’s note: As was noted in the Nov. 17 article, the numbers reported by PAW did not include yearlong internships, which were accepted by nearly 10 percent of the Class of 2010.
