The purpose of this study was to determine if there were statistically significant differences in the factors or people who influenced general population students as compared to top academic students in their choice of college/university. Influences were delineated according to factors or people because recruitment strategies must differ based on these categories. These analyses determined the impact the demographic characteristics of students' gender, community type, high school size, high school type, and anticipated college/major had on higher education choice.
