Abstract

This longitudinal study of high-school students indicates that a "window of opportunity" opens for individuals who enter higher education immediately after high school. Students who delay entry into college are less likely to attain a bachelor's degree. This finding is critical for students who do not possess characteristics to mediate the disadvantage of being off time for higher education.
