Interesting article about how undergrads at bschools are looking for different types of jobs.

Quote:
Daniel Miller, a Wharton senior who interned last summer at a boutique private equity firm in Manhattan, became so discouraged by his search for jobs in finance that he began thinking about becoming a rabbi.

Quote:
For many students at Wharton, part of the University of Pennsylvania, the Wall Street crisis has fostered a sense of relief. Some students now acknowledge that they were pursuing investment banking jobs largely to placate parents who, having invested nearly \$200,000 in their children’s educations, were eager for them to earn top dollar — and some prestige too.

Parent's that try to instill their wants into their kids is disappointing. Also, students should fully be aware of the debt before going to UG, our country has spoiled so many into thinking that people can do/go/have whatever they want. This is what the article reminded me of.
