Earlier this week, Business Insider published a list of 50 underrated colleges around the country—one from each state.
We partnered with Niche to bring you the top schools in the country with great academics and high acceptance rates. To compile this list, Niche used its data for highest academics rankings, acceptance rates, and in-state population.
