NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Eighty-three per cent of the class of 1962 intended, as of graduation last June, to continue their studies, according to a report released recently by the Office of Graduate and Career Plans.

Of the 1,033 June graduates, 668 planned to enter graduate schools immediately, and 190 more intended to join them later. Eighty will study abroad in 20 different foreign countries.

Of the seniors going immediately into graduate studies, 44 per cent are continuing in science, social science, or the humanities. Law schools claimed 22 per cent, and 20 per cent are studying medicine.

Thirty-three members of the June class went to teach abroad. Of this number, 20 joined the Peace Corps, and five joined project Tanganyika. Two are Fulbright teachers in India, and the remaining six are teaching in Germany.

Since 1957 the number of Harvard graduates entering graduate schools has steadily increased, while the proportion immediately entering careers or military service has declined.
