BYU 2nd to Harvard Among Students Accepted

byu_logoOf course, I have to give a shout-out to my alma mater on this story. It appears that, of applicants who are accepted to universities across the U.S., Brigham Young University is rated second only to Harvard as a percentage of those students who actually arrive on campus the first day.

Here’s one thing Harvard and BYU have in common – of all universities in the nation, both have the highest yields of students that choose to attend out of those who are accepted.

A recent study by U.S. News and World Report named Harvard as the most popular university in the nation according to this measure (79 percent yield), with BYU coming in close second with 77 percent.

The study was based on statistics from the fall 2007 entering class and was the second year U.S. News and World Report has conducted the study. Last year, BYU tied with Harvard at the highest national yield of 79 percent.

Go Cougs!
