Date: Dec 31 1969 Major: English (This Major's Salary over time) Well we just edged out Harvard in the US News rankings, so that's cool. Not that those things should be given substantial weight, but after having gone through my first year at Princeton, I can say with great conviction that it is, in fact, the #1 school in the nation.That being said, you're gonna have to work. I mean, really work. And grade deflation sucks. But unlike high school, I have found that I am truly invested in what I'm doing.. and this makes all the difference in the world. I know many schools boast about their "world class" professors, and I'm also aware that there are many good ones out there. BUT, where else does every single undergraduate get a chance to work” one-on-one ”with an accomplished professor on their own research? The thesis is the capstone of your Princeton education, and from what I hear, it's an experience that never leaves you.Don't be scared or turned off by the social scene. After being here, I can now laugh at some of the stories I heard coming in about how dreadfully awful the eating clubs were. Yes, like all Ivies, there are prep school kids here. Yes, people wear Polos. But almost every kid I've met here, beyond whatever exterior they may have, is extremely talented and also pretty down-to-earth. It's a very humbling crowd… let's say.I can't believe I only have 3 years left… freshman year went by in a blink. I can't wait to get back on campus and to all of you considering Princeton, I bid thee good luck and I applaud your decision! I feel very, very priveledged to be a Princeton student—its an opportunity that if given, you'd be downright silly to pass up.
