These are the most selective colleges in New Mexico. We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants by rate of acceptance. Leading the list is New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology which sent acceptance letters to only 24% of the 1,628 students who applied and rejected 76%. 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.
