Few studies have looked rigorously at the succession of college application steps between the development of college aspirations and college enrollment. This study uses ELS data and employs a multivariate logistic framework to examine differences in completion of nine steps in the college application process based on academic and family background characteristics and the completion of prior steps. It also looks at steps towards enrollment at selective institutions. Few students enroll in college without completing five major steps. College aspirations and taking the SAT or ACT as well as meeting with a college counselor or representative are particularly indicative of student completion of subsequent steps. Furthermore, academic preparation is a better predictor of step completion than racial and income categories
