For some students, G.P.A. was missing, so the actual N for many analyses was reduced (see individual analyses for specific N).
* G.P.A. was treated as a categorical variable for some analyses in order for the statistical methods to be more tractable; in these cases, the following groups are used: <2.5, 2.5--3.49, 3.5-4.0.
