From High School to the Future: Potholes on the Road to College

University of Chicago Consortium on School Research

This report examines how Chicago Public School students navigate the college search and application processes, as well as the types of colleges those students apply to and enroll in. Study questions include whether students get the support they need to make informed choices about college and whether students who aspire to attend a four-year college are aware of the steps required to enroll? See 2011 final report.
