ENDNOTES
( 1 ) National data from NACE First Destinations Survey ( 2017 ). Median incomes were also comparable : $ 47,500 for College Track recent graduates compared to $ 48,044 nationally .
( 2 ) Some graduates are both employed full-time and in graduate school for a total graduate school enrollment of 13 %.
( 3 ) We have current visibility ( either via this year ’ s survey or Linked-in ) on 38 of the 40 class of 2016 who took our survey last year - assuming the two for whom we don ’ t know are unemployed : 70 % are employed FT ( up from 58 %), 10 % part-time , 15 % in graduate school , and 5 % still looking for employment .
( 4 ) https :// www . urban . org / sites / default / files / publication / 86981 / who _ goes _ to _ graduate _ scho ol _ and _ who _ succeeds _ 1 . pdf​ - 39 % of Bachelor ’ s degree holders enrolled in grad school within 4 years of college graduation and 37 % of Bachelor ’ s degree holder 25 years and older ( ie a wider sample than our current CT graduates ) have a graduate degree .
( 5 ) They can be affordable with the right amount of aid and scholarships , but this is not a systematic occurrence for our students so , on a case by case basis , we guide them away from financially unsustainable situations .
( 6 ) Our samples of recent graduates are still small , so we see considerable variation of this result from year to year : last year , when the class of 2016 took our survey within a year of college graduation , 78 % said they earned more than at least one parent , compared to only 60 % this year .
