Patricia M. McDonough is Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA.Review:
"I think in-depth case studies and interpretive analyses of students' college decision making can provide much needed additions to the college-choice literature. This book is a very welcome contribution to the genre.The reader is drawn irresistibly into the world of these young people as they proceed through this important choice process." -- James C. Hearn, Institute of Higher Education, University of Georgia"The focus on the effects of family, friends, and high school counselors on college choice is a much needed addition to the college access literature. This book represents a major empirical advance in the field. It is a corrective to the individually-oriented education and status-attainment literature and it extends the organizational approach to education." -- David Karen, Bryn Mawr College
