Top 100 colleges with the highest acceptance rates.
The acceptance rate is the percentage of applicants who are accepted to a school. For example, if 5 out of 100 students who apply to a college are admitted, that college has an acceptance rate of 5%.
The yield rate is the number of students who end up enrolling at their chosen institution after being accepted. In other words, it’s how many acceptances actually go through and enroll at a particular school. This can be different from the overall enrollment rate because many schools have waitlists (in which case some students may be accepted but not actually enrolled).
