OOOOO I know some special pro-Yale thing that Brownalum doesn't! Yale had a 100% acceptance rate for the Goldwater scholarship. 4 applied and 4 were accepted. I don't know what that means or if that is special or not (maybe schools only let people apply that have a strong chance of getting accepted), but that is what it said at Yaledailynews.com.

University of Virginia 4

Colgate - 1

Williams - 2 honorable mentions

Lafayette - 2

Lehigh - 1

Juniata - 2

Etc.

Someone should take the list and do it in alphabetical order of all 310 winners. Help put things in perspective that it's not just the HYPS that shine.

Chasgoose, I have no idea what you are talking about.

Collegeparent, it's not just the HYPS that shine, but HYPS (and Caltech, MIT, Swarthmore etc) kick every school's proverbial butt when you look at these things from a statistical point of view. Simply put, it's almost always a blowout.

It is on yaledailynews.com. Every Goldwater applicant from Yale recieved the fellowship.

Well, it says above that each school could nominate 4 students. So the same must be true of Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford, who all had 4 winners.
