Emory University is one of Georgia’s most competitive schools and it landed on 24/7 Wall St.’s list of the hardest colleges to get into.
A private research institution founded in 1836, the school had a 15.6% acceptance rate for the 2019-2020 school year. More than 30,000 students applied for that period, too.
“The school is popular among foreign students, with 16.0% of the student body consisting of non-resident aliens,” the website wrote in its description of the school’s ranking. “The average annual cost of attending Emory University is relatively high at nearly $67,000.”
U.S. News and World Report placed the school at No. 21 on its 2021 Best National University Rankings. The site also reported it has a 7,118 student enrollment.
