Leading the list is College of the Ozarks which sent acceptance letters to only 14% of the 2,862 students who applied and rejected 86%.

Schools with less rigorous standardized test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have the capacity to potentially enroll.
