Schools Ranked by Acceptance RatePage 3

A college’s overall quality and prestige is in part determined by its selectivity, of which acceptance rate is an indicator. The acceptance rate figures are provided by the IPEDS database, a tool offered by the U.S. Department of Education. The data is for the winter 2013-14 entering undergraduate class.

IPEDS did not have acceptance rate figures for all of the colleges on our list. We did not, however, want to penalize those colleges without data. To that end, we simply excluded those schools from the rankings in this category.
