Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in texas for 2019

These are the most selective colleges in texas. We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants by rate of acceptance. Leading the list is Rice University which sent acceptance letters to only 16% of the 18,063 students who applied and rejected 84%. 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.
