Attempts to determine the consistency with which students report their ethnic background by comparing two sources of self-reported ethnic data: an application form and an interest inventory. Finds that students do not always select the same ethnicity on different forms. Suggests that inconsistency is aggravated by: (1) phrasing of items; (2) extent of blood mix; and (3) social desirability. (NB)
