Leading the least selective list is CUNY College of Staten Island which sent acceptance letters to 99% of the 11,794 students who applied and rejected 1%. Just because a school is less selective doesn't mean it's a lesser school academically or easy to get into. If a school receives predominantly applications from well qualified prospective students and has a large student body, it may accept a high proportion of applications. This does not mean that it's necessarily easier for lesser qualified students to get into a less selective school.
