Expectations, Undergraduate Debt and the Decision to Attend Graduate School: A Simultaneous Model of Student Choice.
Weiler, William C.
Economics of Education Review, v13 n1 p20-41 Mar 1994
Previous econometric studies of relationship between undergraduate debt and postbaccalaureate activity generally do not find an inverse relationship between debt and activity. Multiequation model developed in this article shows that increase in expected educational debt significantly reduces probability that a student expects to enroll in graduate program. Whether debt is expected or actual has little bearing on this decision. (MLH)
