This study dealt with factors selected to be investigated for their relationships with type of college attended, first year college grades, college transfer/non-transfer during the first year of college and college graduation/non-graduation. The subjects of the study were the 1960-1964 (inclusive) graduates of a certain Henrico County high school who attended college.

It was an objective of this study to determine the amount of multiple college application, rejection and acceptance experienced by a student. Any trend in the applications to junior or senior colleges, and the extent of acceptance and rejection by junior and senior colleges, was investigated. In addition, the types of courses in which applicants were deficient according to entrance requirements were studied.
