    There are definitions. Highly selective means that only 1/3rd or less of all students applying get accepted. Before mocking them... 50% of applicants get accepted to USD while 65% of applicants to GU get accepted. Very few schools can claim being highly selective.

    I know you're in the field LI, but are you sure on the GU #? Seems kinda' high, from what I understand.

    Yep... US News & World Report. I know that is self-reported by the university... as I just recently sent ours up recently.

    Note this is actually DOWN 10% from 2015 when it was 75%.

    It is becoming more selective... but has a ways to go to catch up with USD.

    If people are bribing student athletes in sports like rowing and volleyball, just imagine how rampant it must be in sports like basketball and football. Wow.

    Looking into Mr. Peabody's WABAC machine, it now seems probable that my parent's had to bride someone to get me into grade school.
