I'd like to endorse Mary Ann's request.  And,if you are in the 
target cohort but did not go to UCSF or MIT, please also consider 
responding with a list of classmates.  It's hard to draw conclusions 
without data;  as scientists, we know that, and we also know that the
data must be as complete and objectively collected as possible.  
Please help Mary Ann and the career survery cooperative gather the 
data so that we have a better picture of where we are and where we are 
going.  This is a ripe time for collection of these data and discussion
on this topic, and an opportunity as well for this virtual community
to come together.
