SELECTION AND ADMISSION TO HIGHER EDUCATION: INVOLUNTARY REJECTION BY GENDER? A MEXICAN STUDY IN A PUBLIC STATE UNIVERSITY

M. Morfin, V.M. González-Romero

Universidad de Guadalajara (MEXICO)
We present a comparative and correlational study of applicants and admitted students to higher education in the state of Jalisco, Mexico, with about 1,000,000 records in 10 years, by gender and region, in order to respond if the public university selection is an involuntary rejection by gender.

We study and analyze what the women and men want to study and compare the data vs. selection and the university capacity.

Preliminary results indicate that women selected areas are more demanded, so is it more difficult to get a place for study it, while men prefer the areas with less demand and more opportunity to study it, after graduation, men choose those areas who have better salary (traditional engineering areas).

The results are compared among 12 regions of the state of Jalisco to find similarities and differences in the preferences of young people study the offer and the selection of the university in each region.

At the end of the study data were compared with surveys of students from senior high school. The study's findings are a support to guide the orientation offer of higher education in the state of Jalisco, Mexico
