The Selective Effects of Different Pre-Enrollment Counseling Programs on Entering Freshmen.
Lynch, Thomas H.; And Others
Two papers, presented at the 1968 American Personnel and Guidance Association Meeting, indicated that pre-enrollment counseling programs at urban state universities have thus far been unable to reach the many entering students who are not emotionally committed to college achievement. Accompanying flow charts showed limited results with three different approaches to pre-enrollment counseling techniques, while indicating that the more information disseminated prior to enrollment, the less interest there was express in counseling. The reports added that although students do recognize their academic shortcomings, many do not care to voice their concerns. Women tend to be more realistic in their self-perceptions than do men in this age group. While no solutions were offered, suggestions were made that universities bring enrollment procedures into step with the more open admissions policies they now follow. A discussion and critique of the papers is included. (CJ)
