Harvard Class of 2021 – What it Looks Like
Here are eight facts about the Harvard graduating class of 2017:
- Most graduates are going off to jobs in the finance, consulting, and technology industries, with 18%, 18%, and 16% of graduates, respectively.
- More than half of surveyed seniors will make more than $70, 000 their first year out of school, and the median starting salary is between $70, 000 and $89, 000.
- Twenty-three percent of respondents reported cheating in an academic context while at Harvard.
- Forty-three percent of respondents had sex for the first time during college, and 61% percent tried marijuana for the first time while in college.
- Thirty-five percent of respondents whose families make less than $40, 000 a year drank at least once a week. That figure was 69% for families making at least $250, 000.
- Students became more politically polarized while at Harvard. A similar survey given to the class of 2017 during their freshman year asked political affiliation. Four years ago, 15% of respondents identified as conservative, while 9% reported so today, and 17% of respondents called themselves “very liberal” four years ago while 23% reported so for the current survey.
- Ninety-three percent have an unfavorable view of President Trump, much more than the 52% of Americans who reported an unfavorable rating in a WSJ/NBC News poll.
- Sixty-four percent of respondents indicated they censored certain opinions during their time on campus for fear of offending others.
