Research on Who Should Go To College, and When.
Clements, William H.
Extensive research is cited which has established that students most likely to succeed in college: (1) enter college between ages 21 and 25; (2) have been out of high school between 2 and 5 years; (3) have parents of moderate means but do not have to work full time; (4) may be married; (5) are native born or in special programs; (6) have well educated mothers; (7) are interested in learning for the sake of learning or understand what they want to get out of college; and (8) have learned how to work and have some idea of what kind of work they want to do. These predictors are elaborated upon and their implications discussed. Counselors are admonished to heed such data in their dealings with the high school populations whom they serve. (TL)
