Longitudinal Studies on the Class of 1961: The Graduate Science Students.
Berger, Alan S.
The outcome of senior plans for graduate study and actual educational behavior during the first few years after college graduation are related in important ways to national manpower resources. In order to estimate and allocate the nation's supply of trained specialists, therefore, one must know not only the size of the college graduating class but also the percentages in various fields who go on to graduate school, the number who complete their degrees, and the length of time of degree work. This report attempts to provide some of this information as related to scientific fields concerned with medical and health-related manpower. The report is organized into four chapters that (1) analyze factors related to patterns of enrollment in graduate school; (2) analyze factors related to the realization of plans for advanced study in the selected science fields; (3) examine the work experiences of those who did not realize their plans for advanced study; and (4) examine the relationship between graduate school experiences and career plans of science students.
