Coastal College Counseling’s Class of 2017 is moving on!

All of our students from the Class of 2017 have deposited (although a couple remain on waitlists) and the final results are in.  Our first takeaway this year is the percentage of our students who will attend large research universities.  This is a bit of a shift from years past where we found more students focused on mid-sized universities and smaller liberal arts schools.  In thinking about our students from this years class our feeling is that one of the reasons we experienced this change is that a number of our students were on specialized tracks throughout high school (primarily engineering and business) and this led them to finding an area of study that they were excited to continue to pursue at the collegiate level.
