Yeshiva University Ranked Among Most Popular National Universities by U.S. News & World Report

A recent article published by U.S. News & World Report ranks Yeshiva University among the most popular universities in the country.

More than 70% of accepted applicants enroll at YU—the 4th best yield in the country.

The article uses yield—the percentage of applicants accepted by a college who end up enrolling at that institution in the fall—as an indication of the school’s popularity among students. Harvard University, with a yield of 75.5%, tops the list, followed by Brigham Young and Stanford Universities. Yeshiva, with a yield of 70.7%, ranked fourth overall—up two spots from last year.

Yeshiva’s commitment to its Torah U’madda mission and unique dual curriculum make it an overwhelming first choice for many students who apply.

“I chose YU because it was the only college I found that could help me deepen my religious commitment and knowledge while pursuing a solid education in my fields of interest,” said Rafi Skier, a junior at Yeshiva College from Milwaukee, WI.

“Coming from a large public school, Stern College for Women always stood out for me as the perfect balance of small and rigorous classes, access to dedicated professors, and the unlimited resources of New York City,” said Maayan Hachen, a senior from Philadelphia, PA.
