Expected First-Year Graduate Enrollment in Science and Engineering, Fall 1972. Higher Education Panel Report.
Blandford, Barbara A.; Trexler, Joan C.
This survey concerned first-year graduate enrollments in science and engineering for the fall of 1971 and expected enrollments for the fall of 1972. Each institution was asked to indicate (1) how many new applications it had received through July 5, 1971, and what the actual first-year graduate enrollment for that year had been; and (2) estimate enrollments for 1972, indicating the number of new applicants received as of July 5, 1972. This information was requested for the following fields: physical sciences, basic medical sciences, other biological sciences, psychology, other social sciences, engineering, and mathematical sciences. Results of the questionnaire indicate an anticipated overall increase of 2% in first-year science and engineering graduate enrollments, but the projected trends differ according to type of institution and field. Public institutions reported an expected increase, whereas private institutions said they expect a substantial decrease. (HS)
