Sex Differences in Graduate School Survival.
Sells, Lucy W.
This document reports on recent trends in graduate school survival. Data were obtained from a national study of 1950-1953 post-master's students; a recent pilot project in attrition conducted at the University of California, Berkeley; and on trend data in doctoral attrition provided by the Graduate Division at Berkeley. Emphasis is placed on the sex differences in the trends, particularly concerning the processes which operate to drive men as well as women out of graduate school. Some concrete ways in which graduate students can take charge of their own autonomy to become apprentices, and ultimately colleagues are suggested. (Author/MJM)
