  1. On the graph it looks like the men’s basketball graduation rate at Georgetown is between 90-100%, but the text says 60%. Something’s off here. 60% sounds like the more accurate figure.

  2. I am doing a research paper on graduation rate in division 1 college vs division 2. I was wondering if I could use this graph in my report.
