"Flags and Slots": Special Interest Groups and Selective Admissions.
Lang, Katherine E.; Lang, Daniel W.
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v32 n2 p103-42 2002
Combines two studies, from institutional and student perspectives, to determine the role played by special interest group membership in college admissions. Findings indicate how and why special interest group selection works, and show that it is widely used. Findings also indicate that although applicants are aware of the process, their perception of it does not coincide with the motives or expectations of universities. (EV)
