Which New Jersey College Has the Toughest Acceptance Rate?
New Jersey is home to Princeton University, which is the toughest schools to get accepted to in the state.
I was not surprised to see that Princeton was number one on the list compiled by NJ.com. It's an Ivy League School with an acceptance rate of just 6.4%. So that means that out of over applications 31,000 they only make 1,990 offers for accepted students.
I will mention that I was very happy to see my alma mater, Rider University, was on the list as well. They just missed the top 10, as they were number 11 on the list out of 26 schools in the Garden State. Rider had an acceptance rate of 67.2 percent. They received over 9,000 applications and made over 6,000 offers.
Here are the top 3/most difficult school to get into:
3. The College of New Jersey
2. Stevens Institute of Technology
1. Princeton University
The "easiest" school to get into:
25. St. Peter's University
24. New Jersey City University
23. Caldwell University
William Paterson University is listed as the easiest school to get into, but it should be noted the school's application fees have returned. This likely will bring back their acceptance rate to be around 73 percent, the school's spokeswoman told NJ.com
