Ingersoll, Karen S.; Cornell, Dewey G.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v19 n1 p45-62 Fall 1995
This study assessed the social adjustment of female early college entrants using standard measures of adjustment and two comparison groups (traditional college students and boarding school students). Early entrants evidenced higher social conformity and solitary activity than boarding students. They evidenced social adjustment similar to college students but reported a high level of dissatisfaction with their social lives. (DB)
