Colleges with Small Class Sizes and Attentive Faculty

Posted in Your College List

teacher-classroom3In search of colleges with more intimate learning environments?

Look no further, we've identified 50+ schools that fit the bill.  To make the grade, each school has to have at least 70% of their classes with fewer than 20 students and a student/faculty ratio lower than 10:1.

The result: an eclectic mix of private liberal arts colleges and universities where teachers are more likely to know your name, including several institutions featuring tutorial-style or self-directed study programs.

We've included admission rates, mid-50th percentile SAT and ACT scores and links to each school's website to help you explore the possibilities.

UPDATE #1

waitlistpie1415b127For those of you that have been waitlisted at one of your top choices, here's a list of waitlist statistics for several popular private and public schools, along with notification dates and links for more detail if available.

  • Half of the schools admitted 10% or less of the students accepting a place on the wait list last year
  • 35% of the schools admitted 5% or less
  • 9% admitted no one
