Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in for 2018

These are the most selective colleges in . We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants by rate of acceptance. Leading the list is Dartmouth College which sent acceptance letters to only 11% of the 20,675 students who applied and rejected 89%. Interestingly, not all schools on our "most selective" lists are overly academically challenging. 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.
