TeensTalk, an annual survey of college freshmen and high school students preparing to apply to college, is conducted by Chegg and Stamats. Among this year's findings:
- Nearly one-third of students report researching at least 10 colleges as possible places to apply.
- More students report getting serious about their college searches in their junior year, as opposed the senior year, the norm in the past.
- Potential applicants place a high value on ease of application. They report that application fees and additional required essays can be barriers to applying.
The full survey results may be found here.
