2014年度におけるアメリカ最難関大学(学部)10校が発表になりました。
1位は、予想通り、スタンフォード大学(上掲写真)です。
5.1%の志願者しか入れませんでした。
大変です。

でも、この10校に入学できて、卒業できたら、大成功のパスポートをつかんだも同じです。

スタンド―ド大学、米国における最低合格率を記録するーー入学するのに最も難しい10の米大学」というSan Francisco Chronicleの記事と「志願者がもっとも入りにくい10の大学ーー2014年秋の平均合格率は、US Newsに報告されたランクインした大学において64.7%であった」というU.S. News & World Reportの記事を紹介します。

やさしい英文です。読んでみてください。

The 10 toughest U.S. colleges to get into

It's probably not a huge surprise that Stanford reigns at the top of the list of college's with the country's lowest acceptance rates. 

The prestigious university in Palo Alto, Calif., admitted only 5.1 percent of applicants for fall 2014. Harvard ranked second with a 6 percent rate and Yale held the No. 3 spot with a 6.3 percent rate

The list of the 10 hardest colleges to get into is part of U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings of U.S. institutions. The list is based on data collected for the fall 2014 entering class. 

Stanford recently released its admissions numbers for the fall 2015 entering class and the acceptance rate dropped even more to 5 percent, the lowest in the history of the university, according to the Stanford Daily. 

While Stanford and other selective universities make getting into college seem next to impossible, the overall picture is positive. A 2014 report from the National Association for College Admission Counseling reported, "the average acceptance rate across all four-year institutions in the U.S. is 64.7 percent."

The average acceptance rate for fall 2014 was 64.7 percent among ranked colleges and universities reporting data to U.S. News.

If it feels harder to get into college these days, that's because it is.

Over the past decade, college admissions rates have slowly become more competitive, according to the National Association for College Admission Counseling's State of College Admission report. Acceptance rates declined by nearly six percentage points during that time period, according to the organization's figures.

But the good news is that many colleges still admit the majority of applicants. The average acceptance rate for fall 2014 was 64.7 percent among the 1,257 ranked colleges and universities reporting data to U.S. News in an annual survey.

These 10 institutions listed below, however, only accepted a tiny percentage of applicants and reported the lowest acceptance rates for the fall 2014 entering class.

The college with the lowest rate of admission was Stanford University, which sent acceptance letters to just 5.1 percent of applicants for fall 2014. Harvard followed with a 6 percent rate while Yale University admitted just 6.3 percent of applicants. 

On the flip side, seven ranked institutions reported admitting 100 percent of applicants in fall 2014. Those include Saint-Mary-of-the-Woods College, ranked No. 21 among Regional Colleges (Midwest) and Wayne State College, tied at No. 75 among Regional Universities (Midwest).

Here are the 10 colleges and universities with the lowest acceptance rates based on the fall 2014 entering class. Unranked colleges, which did not submit enough data for U.S. News to calculate a ranking, were not considered for this report.

  School name (state)   Fall 2014 acceptance rate
 Stanford University (CA)       5.1%
 Harvard University (MA)       6%
 Yale University (CT)          6.3%
 Columbia University (NY)       7%
 Alice Lloyd College (KY)       7.1%
 Princeton University (NJ)       7.4%
 Massachusetts Institute of Technology 7.9%
 United States Naval Academy (MD) 7.9%
 College of the Ozarks (MO)       8.3%
 Brown University (RI)       8.7%

20人に1人しか入れないスタンフォード。19人に1人のハーバード、イエール。どんな高校生が合格しているのだろうと思ってしまいます。成績がオールAであることは間違いなく、そのうえで、スポーツやボランティアなどの課外活動でめざましい活躍をしているのでしょう。

このようなエリートたちが、こうしたすばらしい大学で、幅広い教養を身につけて、社会に出ていくのです。7位に海軍兵学校が入っているところを見ても、アメリカの強さを感じます。

日本の若者も、このような難関校で揉まれれば、大きく成長できるのにと思ってしまいます。勉強すればするほど認められるのが、アメリカですから。

今日の教訓:難関校には、難関校でしか体験できないすばらしい何かがある!
