This study compared self-report ratings of self-concept before and after the first semester of college among a group of 21 early entrance college students. Results indicated that students maintained their overall level of self-concept following their first semester of college. Mild increases in self-concept were noted in the domains of Physical Appearance and Attributes, as well as Happiness and Satisfaction. These findings concur with previous research, suggesting that academic acceleration for gifted students is not related to decreases in self-concept. (Contains 4 tables.)

Descriptors: Academically Gifted, Acceleration (Education), Self Concept, Comparative Analysis, Enrollment, Interpersonal Attraction, Psychological Patterns, Life Satisfaction, Self Evaluation (Individuals), College Freshmen, Social Adjustment, Emotional Adjustment
