Title:  Getting Ready for College: Financial Concerns and Preparation Among the High School Senior Class of 2003−04
Description: These Issue Tables draw on data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:02) to examine the extent to which parents and students were concerned about college affordability and financial aid availability. The tables also examine whether parents made financial preparations to pay for their children’s education and whether students applying to college also applied for financial aid and, if not, their reasons for not applying. The tables present estimates for all students and by a wide range of student, family, and high school characteristics.
