Reichard, Donald J.; And Others
Differences in selected characteristics of black and white freshman applicants to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, a predominantly white university, were examined using data from the Student Descriptive Questionnaire developed by the College Entrance Examination Board. Background characteristics, special needs, extracurricular activities, and special ability areas of the following study groups were examined: 991 admitted and enrolled students, 864 accepted/no-show individuals, 380 rejected individuals, and 3,393 prospective applicants. Differences in the characteristics of 226 prospective black applicants who elected to attend traditionally black universities and of 343 prospective black applicants who elected to attend traditionally white universities were also identified. Study results and implications of the findings are discussed. (SW)
