Louisiana Colleges that are Hardest to Get Into

These are the most selective public and private four-year colleges in Louisiana. The list is ranked by acceptance rate, lowest to highest and limited to schools which reject at least half of all applicants. Leading the list is Tulane University of Louisiana which sent acceptance letters to only 17% of the 38,816 students who applied and rejected 83%.

Not all schools on the most selective list are overly academically challenging. Some schools with less rigorous test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have space to admit them all.
