Choosing the Right Pond: College Choice and the Quest for Status.
Heath, Will Carrington
Economics of Education Review, v12 n1 p81-88 1993
Although status is important in student's choice of college, students do not always choose most prestigious school they can attend. Student concerns for both local and global status shape college choices. Students with similar abilities but different preferences choose different institutions. Implications for college choice, retention, academic competition, and students' attitudes about academic standards are developed in diagrammatic exposition. (MLH)
