fall 1998 (or the preceding summer term). The initial cohort may be adjusted for students who departed for the following
reasons: deceased, permanently disabled, armed forces, foreign aid service of the federal government or official church
missions. No other adjustments to the initial cohort should be made.

Post-Graduation Activities of Graduating Seniors

employment and 22% have been accepted into a graduate or professional degree program.
Only one in ten students say they do not have any plans to continue their education now or in the future. A majority of
students (51%0) indicate they will seek a master's degree, and nearly a third say they plan to obtain a Ph.D. (15%) or
professional degree (15%). Three percent (3%) report they would like to receive some other type of degree, while 6% are
