MacDermott, Kristine G.; And Others
Journal of College Admissions, n115 p3-10 Spr 1987
Examined first and second generation college attenders and their parents, approaching the college selection process. Students and parents completed questionnaires on attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and attributes. Parents who did not attend college emphasized cost, academic reputation, and personal attention; their offspring, social activities. Second generation parents and their children agreed more and chose schools of greater stature. (KS)
