The redesigned Harvard Crimson was launched on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
There remains a large gap between what students will do next year and what they want to do. The crimson boxes are what students are doing but would rather not do, while the blue boxes indicate fields that students would like to pursue if salary were not a factor. The steepness of the lines between the two sides shows the extent of the disconnect.
The proportion of respondents whose salaries will exceed $50,000 a year next year has increased by 41 percent year-over-year.
Overall, Harvard students were very satisfied with Harvard’s housing system, with Pfoho and Currier ranking highest among the 12 Houses by proportion of residents who were satisfied with their House life experiences. House satisfaction results in this particular survey should be taken with a grain of salt, as the margin of error increases substantially when responses are broken down by House.
Nearly three-quarters of respondents reported drinking alcohol at least once a week. Roughly 10 percent reported drinking once a month, while almost 7 percent said they never drink at all.
The Harvard experience in one word, collected from responses made by members of the Class of 2011 who took The Harvard Crimson’s annual senior survey.
