The Hardest U.S. Colleges To Get Into
1. Harvey Mudd College
Opened in 1957, Harvey Mudd College's reputation hasn't always been stellar. When it first opened, the classrooms were temporary, while professors even went as far as opening up their homes to students to accommodate the space shortage.
Over 60 years later, however, and Harvey Mudd now has an acceptance rate of only 13%, with only 800 students on its books at one time. One of the seven Claremont Colleges, Harvey Mudd is one of the most esteemed liberal arts colleges in America.
