Another: among those who began their postsecondary education within three months of high school completion, 42% had earned a bachelorís degree and another 11% had earned a masterís degree (or higher) by 2012; of those who began their postsecondary education 13 or more months following high school completion, 6% had earned a bachelorís degree and another 1% had earned a masterís degree (or higher) by 2012.
