Notes on a National Survey of College-Bound Seniors in 1972.
Wilson, Kenneth M.
This document presents the results of a survey of high school seniors who took the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examination Board, and who scored 600 or higher on the Verbal portion of the test (a small number of students were also included in the sample who scored between 500 and 599). Some of the highlights of the survey findings include: (1) 97% of the respondents indicated that they would be attending college in the fall; (2) about 75% indicated that they would be attending their first-choice college; (3) about 5% of the respondents indicated that they received invitations of admission from colleges to which they had not applied; (4) the first-choice college for most respondents (92%) was a coeducational institution; (5) 57% indicated that they were academically ready for college by the end of their junior year in high school; and (6) 10% of the students indicated that they would try to earn a bachelor's degree in less than four years.
