I feel as though professors in the humanities set different expectations for their graduating students than other professors in the more quantitative, analytic fields such as science, math, and business.

The next time I see them, I do not expect them to ask about that first well-paying job or if I’m self-supporting living on my own. I am more prepared to be asked whether I have  published a novel, founded a successful non-profit, or led a protest against an oppressive patriarchal force in society.

Different priorities.
