dc.description.abstractThe effects of a declining population of entering college freshmen and the Navy's requirements for technical majors and high Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores on the supply of Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps Midshipmen were examined using the NROTC Class of 1981. It was found that as the population of college-youth declines, it is not likely that the Navy will be able to recruit sufficient applicants of the quality currently desired. The attrition rate appears to be the same for technical and nontechnical majors, but it is possible to discriminate between freshmen and sophomore attritees on the basis of individual characteristics. Students with SAT composite scores between 1150 and 1199 were found to show the highest propensity to survive to the junior year. Colleges with NROTC programs had reliably predictable differences in student attrition rates using NROTC Classes of 1981 and 1982.en_US
