Pitt. Television writer and producer. Income at the start of my career was $15,000 (yes, per YEAR) in 1988. Income today fluctuates between $500K-$1.5 million (usually closer to $600-ish). Solid liberal arts education (never went beyond BA). Absolutely worth it. God only knows where life would have taken me if I went elsewhere. [ Reply | More ]

I majored in computer science at my local state university. I have 2 H grads now who report to me. My education in my area of work is much stronger than theirs but I don't know why someone at H would choose CS degree. My college gave me opportunities to learn a lit but it didn't open doors. I was able to pay for it myself however. For my kids, I believe that the major they choose is more important than the college itself. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Be honest: what do you try to sneak in while your toddler is napping in the crib? When mine goes down, I am 90% sure she will stay asleep at least an hour, sometimes two. So I have left the house to take a 45-min jog before. I feel this is a dirty secret but I suspect I'm not the only one? 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Someone I know did something like this. 2.5 yo was getting out of the crib but she put in a baby gate and left dress up toys and other to keep her busy in her room. Unfortunately, the baby instead tried to climb over the baby gate but could not, but the dresses up scarf she was wearing did snag on the gate and it strangled her when she dropped. We don't know what mom was doing and never found out because mom shot herself the same week. [ Reply | More ]

Like I said, I don't know what she was doing -we were sort of forbidden to talk about it at the time, and out of respect we didn't - but part of the reason the mom took herself out a few days later was (as it was strongly implied) that she could not live with whatever she felt she had done. Because she did leave other children behind. [ Reply | More ]

I have 3 kids. It isn't always possible to watch each child the way you would an only. It's just not feasible. IA that going for a jog isn't justified but generally my point us that having a safe space child can't leave should be ok as many moms simply don't have a choice [ Reply | More ]

It is a mixed bag. By and large, I have successful classmates, at least the ones that like to post to Facebook. But there are also lots of divorces, unhappy marriages, classmates who have had to get sober, some who never found a partner, some who have had cancer and died, some who lived, others who are widows or widowers, some who tried but never could have children ... an HYP degree is a nice calling card, but life is life for everyone.

No matter where you go to school, you get no more out of it than what you put into it. I went to Ohio State and live a pretty average, happy, normal life, but my roommate (ugrad & grad) is a cancer researcher who has invented three new diagnostic techniques and two new treatment regimens and has probably saved thousands of lives. I married an Ivy grad who went non-Ivy for grad school and is successful (barring disaster, I'll never have to work until I want to), but my cousin went to Penn, flamed out, and now scrapes by running her own business. There are doors Ivy can open, but you have to have some substance of your own to be able to walk through them. [ Reply | More ]
