"That's a Good Question!" Exploring Motivations for Law and Business School Choice.
Schleef, Debra
Sociology of Education, v73 n3 p155-74 Jul 2000
Examines the decision-making processes of 79 students who entered the law and business programs at an elite university. Argues that students' accounts for decisions reflect class-related opportunities and constraints. Finds that the majority chose their degrees for similar reasons: professional status, intellectual interest, and an upper-middle-class lifestyle. Considers parental influence. (CMK)
