Advanced Standing Won by 30 Students Entering This Year


Thirty entering students have qualified at this time for Sophomore Standing, a jump of 18 over last year's figure, Harlan P. Hanson '46, Director of the Office of Advanced Standing, reported yesterday. About 25 of the students are from private schools.

The College also admitted ten students under the early admission program from their junior year in high school, about six more than into the Class of '60.

Besides the students who have qualified for Sophomore Standing, 220 students from 73 schools won Advanced Placement in at least one subject. Equivalent statistics show that last year 180 students from 42 schools received some sort of Advanced Placement.

"The increase in Sophomore Standing students is not just a burst of generosity on our part," Hanson said. "It shows that more people who are highly prepared are meeting the standards of objective tests."

"In addition, the fruits of the program as a whole and not just the scattered accomplishments of individual students are now more apparent," he added.

The Advanced Placement Program was initiated several years ago, but was first made available to all high schools in 1956.
