The purpose of this paper is to recount the delivery and results of a survey questionnaire that was given to American-university bound Chinese high school students in Beijing, Wuhan and Shijiazhuang, China.

Another limitation to the research could have feasibly been alleviated by starting the interview process earlier.…
