Today's New York Times reports about the author of a new book who asserts that students should take time to do what they love, to see the world and to experiment before they head off into a professional career path. In Psst, New Grad. Put the Career Off the NYT summarizes a recent book by Colleen Kinder. The 20-something's premise: find adventure in your 20s. Her book and website offer tips to make that happen.
I wonder if I'll have a student read the book during the first week of law school and then decide to postpone the graduate program, which may, in the long term, be a very good decision. The article is an interesting and quick read. We'll be highlighting, from time to time, information that tries to reveal what the "kids today," are thinking. (els)
