Wow, I just don't know what to say about the "hiding you went to Harvard" that some students do. I think they should be as proud as any athlete for their accomplishments. I got a Harvard car sticker which I have blazing on the back of my Volvo as I drive the Autobahns! Sure hope I don't embarrass anyone
On another note, do sophomores have to decide on a concentration at the end of this semester or next? My daughter is strongly leaning towards physics, but says she also really loves the neuroscience elective she is currently taking and is thinking about some way to incorporate the two. I have given her no guidance, because I don't really know anything about either. The only thing I've said is that it seems she would do well as a woman in the physical sciences. I would appreciate anything anyone wants to add here. I don't get into what she's studying, but if she asks again, I would at least like to say, "I heard you should think about..."
