Christopher Avery

NBER Working Paper No. 16359
Issued in September 2010

---- Acknowledgements -----

This project would not have been possible without financial support from the Andrew Mellon Foundation and the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation and the energetic participation of the counselors who worked with students as part of the study. The Harvard Admissions Office and the College Board Search Service provided lists of students for possible participation in the study. Connie Chung, Bernadette Doykos, Sarah Kwon, and especially Travis St. Clair provided outstanding research assistance. Brad MacGowan and Arvin Shapiro led training sessions for participating counselors and the Steinhardt Institute for Higher Education Policy provided generous logistical support for the training session at New York University.
