The Harvard freshman class has a lot going for them. Most graduated top of their class, and their average salary upon graduation is north of $60,000. One thing Harvard freshman lack? Carnal knowledge.
Some other interesting findings from the Harvard Crimson’s Incoming Freshman Survey:
-22% of incoming Harvard freshman have tried marijuana. Less than 1% have tried cocaine.
-14% come from families making more than $500,000 (“the 1%”). Only 15% come from families making less than $40,000 (over 40% of the U.S. population). Students in the highest income bracket had the highest average SAT scores.
-42% admitted to having cheated in high school, at least on a homework assignment. Men were more likely to have cheated than women.
-24% identified as “religious” or “very religious”
The good news?
73% of Harvard-ies get laid before they leave school. And that, plus a $60,000 salary, is pretty darn good.
