U.S. News & World Report released a list of the 10 schools with the highest yield rates in 2013, ranged from 80,6% down to 42%.
Yale Law still dominates the list, this time with an 80.6 percent yield rate. Indeed, the only students who turn down an acceptance to Yale - ranked N°1 in the US News rankings - are probably be the ones who go to Harvard or Stanford, which also appear here with 66.2 and 45.7 percent yield rates, respectively.
Yet, apart from these 3 universities, you may be surprised by the top 10.
1. Yale (80,6%)
2. Harvard (66,2%)
3. Brigham Young University (64,1%)
4. University of New Mexico (46,5%)
5. Southern University Law Center (46%)
6. Stanford University (45,7%)
7. University of Missouri - Kansas City (44,9%)
8. University of North Dakota (43,9%)
9. Indiana University - Indianapolis (McKinney) (42,6%)
10. University of Nevada - Las Vegas (42%)
It is interesting to see that Southern University Law Center, which was ranked in the bottom one-fourth of its ranking category, has a better yield rate than Stanford’s. Also, the University of Missouri and the University of North Dakota were respectively ranked N°104 and N°129 in the 2015 US News ranking - yet they are in the top 10 of the highest yield rates!
