Despite college administrators and peers telling them otherwise, Ivy League graduates just can’t seem to resist the allure of Wall Street. IvyGate pointed out yesterday that three out of four of Dartmouth’s valedictorians are headed to careers in finance. According to the university’s newspaper, two of the top scholars are headed to investment banking at Goldman Sachs and one is set to start in M&A at Morgan Stanley.

The fourth? Well she’s off to McKinsey and Co. as a business analyst. 

Not all hope is lost, however. The undergraduate valedictorians at Princeton and Columbia each opted for something a little more humanitarian, working in clinical and organic chemistry research, respectively.
