“Students want grades to reflect that given all the resources they needed, they mastered the content. Society wants grades to show which students succeeded and which floundered in a hard class. While we can’t say which is more valuable, schools should be optimizing for learning, not arbitrary faux-geniocratic sorting.”

How Princeton can better support students in job and internship searches

“At first I thought that I was the only one who missed these deadlines, but after speaking with more alumni and learning about their recruitment timelines, I discovered that I am far from the only student at the University who was caught off guard by the application timeline.”

Smart students study STEM: Unpacking the myths of Princeton’s academic hierarchy

“It is precisely the weedout culture so widespread in STEM coupled with the intense workload of STEM courses that make many of us perceive STEM as at the top of the academic hierarchy.
