In 10th week of their final quarter at UCSD, we surveyed our graduating seniors about what they will be doing upon graduation.  Out of 350 students graduating Spring 2012, 150 responded to our senior survey.  We want to thank all of our Seniors who so generously shared their future plans and provided us with useful feedback regarding their instructors and the economics program—Thank you class of 2012, you rock!  Below is a summary of the responses on what students will be doing next year.  In a future blog post, we will report a summary of responses to the question, “What is one piece of advice you’d give to a new Economics/Management Science/Joint Math-Econ major?”
