That Siren for Harvard Undergrads…Wall Street

The link is here, hat tip to a Harvard alumna. Ezra Klein’s meme is that Wall Street firms recapitulate the Ivy League application process mentality providing comfort zone and graduate skills all while…wait there’s more…paying the big bucks.

Money quote:

So it seems universities have been looking at the problem backward. The issue isn’t that so many of their well-educated students want to go to Wall Street rather than make another sort of contribution. It’s that so many of their students end up feeling so poorly prepared that they go to Wall Street because they’re not sure what other contribution they can make.
