Harvard University has always had a reputation for being one of the toughest colleges in the world for students to get into, so it's no surprise Harvard tops the list of colleges with the lowest acceptance rate in Massachusetts.
But this map of The Hardest Colleges To Get Into In Every State, put together by Business insider, has a few surprises- Baylor beat out by Rice in Texas, California Institute of Technology beat Stanford, Berkeley and UCLA and, well, that's about it.
Duke, Yale, Vanderbilt, Brown, Clemson, Princeton, Georgetown and BYU are all tough to get in as expected, but the New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology is surprising, considering it sounds like a trade school.
As it turns out New Mexico Tech is one of the "best small science and engineering schools in North America", so you don't have to major in mining!
