This report describes the procedures and results of the full-scale implementation of the B&B:93/03 study. Students who earned a bachelor's degree in 1992-93 were first interviewed in 1993 and then subsequently in 1994 and 1997. This is the final follow-up interview of the B&B:93 cohort, 10 years following completion of the bachelor's degree. The results of this study offer an opportunity to assess the value of a baccalaureate degree at a time when sample members are becoming established in their careers. Specific topics of interest include length of time to complete a baccalaureate degree, the pursuit of additional postsecondary education beyond a bachelor's degree, and employment outcomes. The following are appended: (1) Data Collection Mailout Materials; (2) Technical Review Panel Members; (3) Final Set of Data Elements Used in B&B:93/03 Survey; (4) Facsimiles of B&B:93/03 Interview and Previous Interviews; (5) Self-Administered, Telephone, and Field Interviewer Training Manuals; (6) Listing of Analysis Variables Derived for B&B:93/03; (7) Design Effect Tables; and (8) Item Nonresponse Bias Tables. (Contains 43 tables and 9 figures.)
