Analyses of college students' problems have been made from time to time for various purposes. One of the primary motives seems to have been to use such information to improve counseling services. Both Carr (1) and Stone (4) used the Mooney Problem Check List as the source of information about student problems at the college level. Carr compared the problems of 300 superior college students with 300 inferior students. Although superior students had fewer problems, they had an equivalent number in seven of the eleven problem areas when compared with the inferior students. Superior students were more concerned with long-range problems, while problems concerned with adjustment to college were more characteristic of the inferior group.
