Rulon, Professor of Education, as part of an independent study project on which he has been working for over eight months, the results of which he hopes to publish by next spring.
"In your senior year what vocation did you plan to enter? What is your chosen vocation now? Can you estimate pretty acemately (say within 10 or 20 percent) your annual earned income five years after your formal education ended?" are some of the questions asked.
So far 70 percent of the questiounaires have been returned.
