QUESTION: what happens when a college wants a balanced class but has a much smaller female applicant pool to draw on?
ANSWER: higher admission rates for females!
Like our previous post, we looked at several popular coed institutions and searched for places where there was a 15% or greater admission rate advantage, this time for women. The result: a list of 48 schools for qualified applicants to consider.
The list is dominated by institutions strong in the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), but you'll also find some unexpected names like Connecticut College, the College of Charleston, Franklin & Marshall, Kenyon and Lafayette College.
To help you categorize schools into safeties, targets and reaches, we've included admission rates, mid-50th percentile SAT and ACT scores. We've also provided links to each school's website to help you explore fit.
