A sample of students was followed from high school senior status to their educational or vocational situation one year later. The majority of students were attending four-year or junior colleges, while small numbers of students were in trade, business, or nursing schools, were working full time, or were in the military service. When student groups were compared on measures of academic and nonacademic potential, the distribution of students to training institutions or jobs was found to be based primarily on academic rather than on nonacademic dimensions of talents. The aspirations of students were generally congruent with their educational outcomes. Some implications of the results for the assessment of "talent loss" are discussed.
