figures are the result 01 a stuay
based on 1,579 freshmen enter
ing the University in September,
1947.
BY SUPERFICIAL analysis,
therefore, it could be said tnat
an entering college freshman
has a fifty-fifty chance to gradu
ate. Prediction, however is much
more certain for an individual
when additional factors are con
sidered. Those students who
have high achievement in high
school and on tne pre-regisua-tinn
crnidnnre examinations, and
e -- ... .j
who are nersonaiiy weu-aaju&ieu
have a three-to-one, perhaps a
fnnr-to-one chance to graauaie,
Discounting all other xaciors,
the differences between groups
of varying ability are remark
able; for example, out of stu
dents with superior ratings in
terms of pre-registration guid
ance examinations, eighty per
cent return for a second year
in college, but out of a group
of students with poor ratings on
