Do Parental Income and Educational Attainment Affect the Initial Choices of New Hampshire's College-bound Students?
Toutkoushian, Robert K.
Economics of Education Review, v20 n3 p245-62 Jun 2001

Having a low family income does not appear to restrict college-interested students from considering more exclusive and/or expensive institutions. Students' academic ability influences their choice of college. (Contains 43 references.) (MLH)
