These are the most selective colleges in Illinois. We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants by rate of acceptance. Leading the list is University of Chicago which sent acceptance letters to only 8% of the 30,069 students who applied and rejected 92%. Interestingly, not all schools on our "most selective" lists are overly academically challenging. Schools with less rigorous standardized test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have the capacity to potentially enroll.
