College students are more likely to enroll in college after attending a top college than after attending another school, according to a new study.
But many of them may be spending their time at a college that’s not as prestigious as their home school, the report found.
The finding comes from a nationwide survey of nearly 3,000 students who attended at least one accredited college, and the study was published Thursday by the journal Educational Researcher.
Among the top 10 colleges studied, six are in the Northeast, including Boston College, Yale University, New York University and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
The average SAT score of those surveyed was 15,927, according a study published in March.
The top three schools in the study are all in the New England states of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
The Northeast has one of the highest median household incomes in the country.
The New York area has the third-highest median household income, with the median household earning $71,838.
The West Coast has the fourth-highest, with a median household household earning about $57,843.
The South is No. 3, with median household earnings of about $60,000.
The Midwest has the fifth-highest household incomes, with an average household earning roughly $53,000, the study said.
Students from these states typically attend the same top schools.
The survey was based on responses from more than 2,000 participants ages 18 and older.
The researchers did not say which schools were more popular.
They said that the most popular college in each region would be a factor in choosing the school.
The students were asked which colleges they would like to attend in their lifetimes.
The study found that most students would choose a top school in their lifetime, and that their choices would vary based on the school’s alumni.
The most popular schools in each state are as follows: Massachusetts, where students ranked Boston College as their top choice; Connecticut, which students ranked Yale University as their second choice; New Hampshire, which chose New York’s Stony Brook University; and Rhode-Island, which ranked New Hampshire Institute of Technology as their third choice.
New York students ranked MIT as their fourth choice.
Connecticut students ranked Harvard as their fifth choice.
Rhode Island students ranked Providence College as the sixth choice.
The research was based off of a survey of more than 4,500 college students who took the College Board’s College Scorecard, a nationally representative online test that measures academic performance and the likelihood of graduating.
The College Board says that the College Scoreboard is the best way to determine the overall quality of an institution and the overall value of a college education.
It’s the first of its kind.
The findings are based on an extensive list of data, including questions about the students’ social networks, the types of classes they took, and whether they were exposed to the media.
They also looked at how they did on various cognitive tests.
The college students also had to rate their level of confidence in their ability to do college-level work, and how much they valued their grades.
They were also asked questions about their financial situation, and about whether they thought they were ready to earn money.
