P.S. I don't like the author's implication that you should do
math/science/engineering if you're smart, and if you can't hack it, then you
should do liberal arts.
That very notion (pushed by his parents - both MIT grads) kept my husband
from realizing that he really should have majored in history or philosophy
or literature instead of science. By the time he realized what a mistake he
was making being at Tech, it was too late to transfer... When our kids are
older, he'll probably go back to school for some kind of liberal arts
degree. In the meantime he's studying and pursuing his interests in
philosophy and literature.
