Therefore the goal of the program was to better support students throughout the process and to help ensure they are satisfied with their college admissions results. Hence all high school seniors in the school participated in the four-month program, which started at the beginning of the school year. Consequently students were randomly placed in four different groups:• The Control Group received the schools’ regular college counseling program, which included a monthly one-on-one meeting with the guidance counselor (4 total meetings).• Treatment Group 1 received bi-weekly one-on-one meetings with the guidance counselor (8 total meetings).• Treatment Group 2 received monthly one-on-one meetings with the guidance counselor (4 total meetings) plus a monthly group workshop with the guidance counselors focused on application preparation (4 workshop sessions).

Treatment Group 3 received monthly one-on-one meetings with the guidance counselor (4 total meetings) plus a packet of application prep materials. At the end of the four-month program, students were under  survey about their experience in the 4-month program and they ask them to disclose to how many colleges they did apply. In May, students were under survey again to assess  the results gave them satisfaction of the college admissions process. Data, Variables, and Codebook: They organize the  data  such that each row corresponds to a student. Each student is observed only once in the data.
