EACH OF APPROXIMATELY 570 HIGH SCHOOLS (BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE) AGREED TO HAVE ITS SENIOR CLASS COMPLETE A QUESTIONNAIRE DESIGNED TO RELATE SPECIFIC BACKGROUND FACTORS TO POST-HIGH SCHOOL PLANS. SIMILAR DATA WERE GATHERED ON FRESHMAN STUDENTS ENROLLED IN ALL THE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF MINNESOTA. (JH)
