The Arts and Science Graduate Student. The Survivors.
Davis, James A.
The author of the present document maintains that today's graduate students in the arts and sciences are an elite group of individuals who have somehow survived the student attrition process. Data are presented that back up this statement, beginning with statistical data concerning high school students continuing through the senior year in college. The paper considers the rationale students use for not continuing their education, presents facts concerning the turnover in major field study choices, and gives personal statistics related to successful students. Furthermore, a comparison of the characteristics of those students enrolled in the sciences and those enrolled in the arts is offered throughout. (HS)
