Are today's students worse than previous generations?  This study across three institutions attempts to compact three separate measures of Academic Entitlement into one, cohesive inventory.  Mean level differences by gender, ethnicity, year in college, and status as first-generation student were examined, as well as correlations with personality, perceived power, and attitudes towards professor accessibility.  Future directions in terms of causes and consequences will be explored.
