WASHINGTON - The price of a
first-class letter will jump to 32 cents
starting Jan. 1.
The independent Postal Rate Com-
mission yesterday endorsed the pro-
posed 32-cent stamp, declaring that

The commission rejected a re-
quest for a 10.3 percent across-the-
board increase on publications, bulk
mail and parcels that the Postal Ser-
vice and mailers had championed.
Instead, the commission imposed
higher increases on those mail cat-
egories, accusing postal officials of
continuing to attempt to foist "a dis-
proportionate amount" of the agency's

"I am not going to go to Pale

have not recognized anv other kind of

Thinking of entering the world of

Graduate programs around the

number of students taking the GMAT

program - has declined for the past
five years, said University Business
School Counselor Evonne R.

considering applying to an MBA pro-

perience before applying.
"Students will need real-life expe-

fields to be successful in business

In fact, 92 percent of University
MBA students have at least one or
more years of work experience before
entering the graduate program.
Plantinga feels students who are
in the job market before entering an
MBA program will "have a better
