Science and Engineering PhDs per hundred graduates

Interesting NSF data showing which undergraduate institutions' students are most likely to go on to earn science and engineering PhDs. (Click for larger graphic.)

Which institution produces the largest number US PhDs in absolute terms? See here.

Science 11 July 2008: A new study has found that the most likely undergraduate alma mater for those who earned a Ph.D. in 2006 from a U.S. university was … Tsinghua University. Peking University, its neighbor in the Chinese capital, ranks second. Between 2004 and 2006, those two schools overtook the University of California, Berkeley, as the most fertile training ground for U.S. Ph.D.s (see graph). South Korea's Seoul National University occupies fourth place behind Berkeley, followed by Cornell University and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

The normalized figure for Berkeley is about 6% -- six times lower than Caltech.

This is a little off topic, Steve, but in case you have money on the outcome just remember: Bones got a glass chin. Suga gonna break it.

Trying to decide whether I should try to see the fight at a bar or something. Bones has to be the favorite, but Suga impressed me against Davis. Could be a good fight!

 And only barely related, I always liked to play the tall, lanky Indian dude in Street Fighter.  Evans is never going to get close enough to do any damage.
