What letter grade would you give your school on how well it prepares students for a career in the real world?

Princeton is a liberal arts school with limited training in specific tools, but is an environment where learning is valued, so I felt prepared to acquire whatever skills I needed.

Students and Culture
What letter grade would you give the students/culture at your school?
Based on 7 Reviews
Alumni
Economics, Class of 1976
There is no single culture or typical student. But most students are driven to want to be the best (and willing to do the work to get there).
Rated January 2016
Alumni
Psychology, Class of 2010
Competitive but accepting of others. Everyone is used to being a high-achiever, so one is made to feel ashamed of wanting to work very hard for high grades.

What letter grade would you give the facilities at your school.

Ivy League -- excellent facilities. The student gym is showing it's age. Dining halls, labs, etc are all state of the art.
Rated January 2016
Alumni
Psychology, Class of 2010
High quality, usually the latest model/edition/version. There is old, historic architecture so those buildings tend to be more difficult to modernize, but generally there is no real difference. Many of the dorms have been recently renovated. Dining halls (especially the older ones) have a very nice environment to sit and eat within.

Based on 7 Reviews
Alumni
Economics, Class of 1976
Princeton students are all over the map with regard to interests and activities. So there is a student group for almost any activity, and there is leeway to create a new group if there is a critical mass of interested students.
