As an appreciative reader of Nicolai Ouroussoff and as chair of Otis College of Art and Design's School of Fine Arts, I read his Nov. 15 piece "Big Hopes at Otis College Get Boxed In" with a mix of sadness and dismay about his judgment regarding the interiors of the new fine-arts building under construction on campus.

"They mostly have to go into business for themselves," said Dawn Traub of the National Assn. of Colleges and Employers, which keeps job-offer statistics.

What do you say to parents who are afraid to send their 18-year-old to art school for fear that he or she won't get a job after graduation?
