Date: Dec 31 1969 Major: English (This Major's Salary over time) Having "Stanford University" on my resume opened doors for me all along the way. If it built the confidence of employers that they were about to hire a smart, capable person, it also, in an odd way, gave me confidence too—if I had gotten into Stanford and succeeded there, how hard could anything else be?

My classes in the English department exposed me to great writing, challenged me to think about what I was reading, fascinated me with lore about the origins of words and built my confidence as a writer. Plus, I had a great time.
