- Critique of Steve Jobs’s Stanford graduation speech. Yes, it is better to do something you enjoy than something you don’t enjoy. Could we go beyond that, please?
- Is graduation from Desirable College worth taking on staggering debt? By a Stuyvesant High student who managed to be admitted to several desirable colleges without enough financial aid. A friend of mine, who graduated from UC Berkeley, got into all the top law schools: Harvard, Yale, etc. But she wanted to go to Sweden for a year. She could not postpone admission. When she got back from Sweden, she ended up going to a local law school. “After my first job, the low prestige won’t matter,” she thought. How wrong she was. Going to the local law school was a huge mistake.
