college counseling

An interesting study by Christopher Avery:

One theme was that low-income, high-achieving students were aware of top name-brand institutions (Ivy League) but not stellar institutions (that probably would have admitted them and offered fi-aid) with a little less household name-brand recognition like Carnegie Mellon, Wesleyan, etc.


One response to this post.

    yeah.. the stellar institutions need to do a better job at promoting themselves… esp to immigrant kids! haha.
