Factors Influencing the Matriculation Choices of High Ability Students.
Weiler, william C.
Economics of Education Review, v15 n1 p23-36 Feb 1996
Examines the matriculation behavior of high-ability students choosing among a small set of higher education institutions that are close competitors. Results suggest that students' choices are influenced by net attendance costs and that attendance cost effects decline as parental income increases. Nonmonetary and nonacademic factors, such as housing and recreational options, are also heavy determinants of college choice. (21 references) (MLH)
