30 Christian Colleges that Students Want to Attend

Berea College

Berea College

A few days ago US News released rankings of College’s Yields. The Yield is the percentage of accepted students who actually chose to attend a particular school. This is a helpful number that can be useful in assessing a schools perceived desirability to students and parents and is included on the Faith on View survey which is currently being designed and will be a part of the Faith on View reputation score for the 2014 rankings. Until the research for the Faith on View rankings has been completed these are helpful numbers to consider. It is important to realize that not all institutions in the Faith on View rankings were included in this US News study. US News focused largely on National Liberal Art Colleges and National Universities In a few months, we should be able to release a more complete study of this statistic. Still, it is useful information. The two lists released by Us News have been condensed into a single list and only schools included in the 2014 Faith on View study are included here. It is also important to point out that more institutions have been added to the 2014 study than were in the 2013 study. Some some institutions listed here will not be able to be located in the 2013 study results.
