^{a}Of *N* = 468, there were 229 graduates who did not contribute any tour (of at least 2 weeks consecutively) of rural service. The remaining 239 graduates had at least 1 tour, with 41 at least 2 tours, 7 with at least 3 tours, and 1 with 4 tours. Worded differently, 198 graduates had only 1 tour, 34 with 2 tours, 6 with 3 tours, and 1 with 4 tours^{b}A ‘tour’ of rural service here is defined as a duration of at least 2 consecutive weeks. Multiple short tours (of ≥2 consecutive weeks each) within one calendar year are summed together for duration calculation and treated as 1 tour for that particular year^{c}Summary tour statistics are calculated among graduates incurring the concerned tours of service only. For example, Tour 1’s duration is calculated based on *n* = 239 graduates who contributed at least 1 tour of rural service (of at least 2 consecutive weeks), and excludes *n* = 229 graduates with zero tour in rural work^{d}Statistics presented are Mean Duration (95% Confidence Interval), in weeks
