Entrance of Women to Graduate and Professional Education.
Baird, Leonard L.
The rates at which men and women attend graduate and professional school were compared in a large national sample of college seniors followed up a year after graduation. Women attended less often, even women with very high grades. Women were particularly underrepresented in law and medicine. When the attendance rates of individuals who had planned to continue their educations the year after college were compared, women followed through with their plans less often. Analyses designed to identify variables related to attendance and following through with plans suggested a long term lower level of confidence among the women. (Author)
