The Ivy League piece seems reasonable, except for this:

"The class of 2013 senior survey showed that more than 30 percent of the 2013 class had jobs in those fields. After consulting and finance, the technology/engineering industry captured 13 percent of Harvard graduates that year. The Crimson again emphasized—with what seems to me to be the appearance of similar disdain—the preference of women to pursue less-lucrative work in education, media, and health care rather than in finance, consulting, and technology.

The top career choices of many male Harvard students—whether it is 2007 or 2013—are severely lacking in any element of service."

Technology/engineering has no element of service?

I read it a bit differently - that the author argues that finance/consulting has no element of service. Even there, I would disagree with her, being myself a consultant who seems to be doing quite a lot of service!!!!

I don't believe in a meritocracy where the meritorious just happen to be relatives of the other meritorious.
