Excellent Colleges for “B” Students

Much is made of the minuscule acceptance rates at some of the most prestigious colleges in the United States. For example, Stanford admitted only 4.6% of applicants in 2017 and actually managed to grow even more selective in 2018, boasting a 4.3% acceptance rate. Fortunately, for all of you B students with strong but nowhere near “perfect” credentials, there are a number of fine institutions that would be more than happy to provide you with a wonderful education. The 25 schools that made our Excellent Colleges for B Students list have acceptance rates between 41-79% and take a good number of high schoolers who did not land in the top 10% or even top 25% of their graduating classes.
