As a loyal alumnus, after 52 years I have finally figured out what makes Princeton such a special place. And it’s not what Princeton is. It’s what Princeton is not.

While Princeton has very prestigious graduate programs, it does not have a law school, a business school, nor a medical school. Most of the other Ivy League schools have all three professional schools and all have at least one.

Princeton’s unique focus on the undergraduate experience is what makes it so special. We should promote that attribute more.
