I'm from the government and I'm here to help

I just finished filling out the 2003 National Survey of College Graduates from the National Science Foundation. Somehow they decided to pick me as a respondent, even though I got my degree in Canada and have never attended school in the US.

The survey asked a bunch of questions about current employment, recent employment history, education, demographics, etc. The accompanying documentation said that the results of the survey will assist the NSF in deciding how to invest in research and education. I believe both these things are of critical importance to society, so I was happy to take the time to fill out the survey.

Hopefully this will help somebody, somewhere.
