Business Insider: BYU-Idaho Most Underrated College in Idaho


  • BYU-Idaho

The Business Insider recently compiled a list of the most underrated colleges in every state, looking at data for highest academic rankings, acceptance rates and in-state population. The Business Insider writes that schools’ strong academic programs are often overshadowed by perception that a college is only good if it’s tough to get into.

The Mormon-owned Brigham Young University-Idaho gets the “Most Underrated College” title for the state of Idaho. BYU-Idaho has a 99 percent acceptance rate (one of the highest in the country) with 15,235 undergrads in Rexburg.

The Business Insider calls it a “smart—and potentially safe—option for student applicants.”
