Graduate Student Characteristics and Their Program Satisfaction at Miami University.
Skipper, Charles E.
Graduate student characteristics and their program satisfaction at Miami University in 1972 are analyzed. Biographical characteristics of applicants were obtained from a sample of 96 applications. To answer questions concerning degree of satisfaction in their academic programs, a total of 131 questionnaires were sent to all students who had completed at least one year of graduate study while holding an assistantship or teaching fellowship. Results indicated: (1) two-thirds of the applicants to the Graduate School are residents of Ohio, while four-fifths are from the mid-west; (2) nearly one-third of the applicatns are graduates of Miami with an additional 13% from universities in Ohio; (3) males have a slight edge in number of applicants over females, 54 to 46%; (4) grade-point average centers, around 2.90 with range from 2.00 to 3.90; and (5) the vast majority of graduate students are satisfied with their academic programs, and their personal relationships with faculty and fellow students. The appendix includes the graduate applicant questionnaire. (MJM)
