Which test should I use? (Questionnaire analysis)

Dear all

I just received all questionnaire responses but I am not sure which test is the best for analyzing the data.

The questionnaires were distributed to two groups, one is for successful candidates; another one is for the unsuccessful candidates.

Most of the data is nominal, and my goal is to look for the special features that successful candidates have allowing higher chance to be accepted. It is appropriate to use chi-square test?

Thank you very much for answering!

I think it would be wise to use a Chi-Squared Test of Independence.
However I'm not completely sure of this, so if someone more experienced could back this up (or give better advice) you'll be fine.

Kind regards
