This report presents findings of the second follow-up in the Baccalaureate and Beyond Study, a longitudinal study which is tracking students who received a bachelor's degree in academic year 1992-93. Major findings indicated that: (1) when they graduated from college, 85 percent of the degree recipients expected to earn an advanced degree; by 1997, 30 percent had actually enrolled, 21 percent had either attained a degree or were still enrolled, and 9 percent had left without a degree; and that (2) overall, 89 percent of the original group were employed in April 1997, 76 percent were working only, another 13 percent were combining school and work, 5 percent were enrolled only, and 6 percent were neither working nor enrolled. Following an executive summary, the main body of the report analyzes findings concerning educational expectations in 1993 and 1997; progression to graduate and first-professional education; and actual participation in graduate and first-professional education. A compendium presents tables showing data on the employment and enrollment status of 1992-93 college graduates. A glossary and technical notes are appended. (DB)
