In fall 2017, 83 METS seniors enrolled in 27 different college. This was a smaller senior class than METS usually has, mostly due to the transition to new target schools.
Following up on recent trends
In our previous studies, we identified a few areas to study further. The first, was a trend of less students attending the University of Maine in recent years. This year, as usual UMaine was the most popular school of enrollment for METS graduates, with a rate of 21.7%. This is a return to the rates we had seen before the last two years.
