The Channeling of Student Competition in Higher Education: Comparing Canada and the U.S.

We compare new forms of student competition to enter Canadian versus American higher education. In the U.S., this competition triggers student strategies to enter prestigious institutions, while in Canada it is absorbed across fields of study. We trace these differences to the greater hierarchy in the U.S. system and discuss the possible future course of competition.
