Kern, Carolyn W. Kelpe
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v24 n6 p487-494 Jul 2000
Describes the results of a study about the college choice process for minority high school students considering postsecondary education. Finds that the biggest influence on college choice appears to be parents, college reputation, friends, and the student's own initiative. Financial aid was an important consideration for many students. (Contains 15 references.) (VWC)
