Question: what happens when a college wants a balanced class but has to draw on a much smaller male applicant pool?

Answer: higher admission rates for guys!

We looked at several popular coed institutions and searched for places where there was a 15% or greater admission rate advantage for male applicants.  The result: an intriguing list of 26 schools to consider.

The majority of the schools on the list are liberal arts colleges, but you'll also be surprised to see names like Brown, Pepperdine, Vanderbilt, Tufts and Yale.    

To help you categorize schools into safeties, targets and reaches, we've included admission rates, mid-50th percentile SAT and ACT scores.  We've also provided links to each school's website to help you explore fit.
