New Jersey Colleges that are Hardest to Get Into

Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in New Jersey for 2020

These are the most selective colleges in New Jersey. We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants. Leading the list is Princeton University which sent acceptance letters to only 5% of the 35,370 students who applied and rejected 95%. 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 space to admit them all.
