You might have guessed that Harvard University, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, would be the hardest college to be accepted into in that state.
But the most selective schools in other US states might surprise you.
The rankings are based on acceptance rates and SAT and ACT scores reported to the US Department of Education. College acceptance rates received a weighted average of 60% in the ranking computation, and SAT/ACT scores received a weighted average of 40%.
Niche reports that a few states – Alaska, Delaware, Nevada, and Wyoming – are missing from the ranking because they don’t have data for enough colleges.
