Last night, Harvard graduate Jeremy Lin put up 28 points and 8 assists in a Knicks victory over the Utah Jazz. After the game, Harvard graduates around the world rejoiced.
“Before this, I had no hope,” said Candace Kim, ’03, “I was just another unemployable Harvard graduate with no prospects. Jeremy Lin’s performance proved that Harvard graduates can succeed after school.”
Yet it isn’t just Harvard grads who are celebrating Lin’s breakout performance. Students and alumni of other Ivy League schools have also found solace in Lin’s spectacle. Said John Wallace, Dartmouth ’13, “To be honest, I had no idea how I was going to find a job after school. But now, I know that it is possible for people graduating with an Ivy League degree to succeed in the world.”
Added Wallace, “Well, except for students from Cornell, they aren’t really an Ivy.”
