This is the most difficult college in New Hampshire to get into

Any New Englander will tell you that many factors contribute to our region's outstanding reputation, including our schools and higher education opportunities.

New Hampshire in particular is home to more than 20 colleges and universities. These institutions are not only great learning centers, but also popular employers throughout the Granite State.

But which of these schools has the lowest acceptance rate? 24/7 Wall Street researched the hardest college to get into in each state, and their verdict for New Hampshire should come as no surprise.

We all know that Dartmouth is a member of the Ivy League, so the acceptance rate is remarkably low. According to the school's official website, only 5.3% of applicants for the class of 2028 were admitted (1,685 of a record-breaking 31,657 applicants). 24/7 Wall Street also stated that the median SAT score for students is 1500/1600. That's a far cry from this author's SAT scores (and probably yours, too).

Do you think you could get into a school like Dartmouth despite all odds? What about Harvard, which has an even lower acceptance rate of ~3.4? Whatever the case may be, if you are a prospective student, we wish you the best of luck in the application process. And speaking of schools, let's look at some others in New Hampshire.
