(DOES NOT FULLY MATCH AUDIO)

TWO-THIRDS OF GRADUATE-STUDENTS BELIEVE THAT AN ADVANCED DEGREE IS THE NEW MINIMUM-STANDARD, FOR ANY PROFESSIONAL OCCUPATION.  AND, A FULL 95-PERCENT BELIEVE THAT SUCH A DEGREE IS NECESSARY, FOR THEIR OWN CHOSEN CAREER.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO "HOW AMERICA PAYS FOR GRADUATE-SCHOOL"--A NEW STUDY FROM "SALLIE MAE" AND "IPSOS".  THE REPORT FINDS THAT CAREER-ASPIRATIONS ARE DRIVING STUDENTS TO GRAD-SCHOOL--AND COST IS LESS OF A FACTOR.  WHILE THREE-FOURTHS OF THEM BORROW FOR GRAD-SCHOOL, NEARLY NINE-IN-10 ARE CONFIDENT THAT THEY'VE MADE THE RIGHT DECISIONS--WHEN IT COMES TO PAYING FOR SCHOOL.  IN ADDITION, GRAD-STUDENTS ARE RESULTS-ORIENTED--AND THEY'RE NOT AFRAID TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR PAYING FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO EARN THEIR ADVANCED DEGREE.  THEY ALSO EXPECT A RETURN ON THEIR INVESTMENT--IN THE FORM OF A SIGNIFICANT JUMP IN THEIR EARNINGS-POTENTIAL.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "SALLIE-MAE"-DOT-COM; THAT'S "SALLIE-MAE"-DOT-COM.
