Getting to the Ivy League: How Family Composition Affects College Choice.
Lillard, Dean; Gerner, Jennifer
Journal of Higher Education, v70 n6 p706-30 Nov-Dec 1999
A study using High School and Beyond longitudinal-survey data found students from disrupted families were less likely to apply to, be admitted to, or attend four-year colleges, and less likely to attend a selective college. Differences in family resource levels accounted for the largest proportion of the difference in college choice between intact-family and disrupted-family students. (MSE)
