Ever wondered if the school you’re going to has the most eligible students and alumni? The popular dating app Hinge has detected 30 universities that have the most eligible students in the United States based on beauty and brains.

Hinge connects friends of friends to one another and features profiles of single people in your city, but only from second-and-third-degree connections.  When you like someone you swipe right, and if you don’t, swipe left.

According to Business Insider, Hinge based its results on two factors: attractiveness (the alumni from these universities have high “swipe right” rates on their profiles) and academic ranking, using US News & World Report’s competitive ranking of national universities, which leaves out liberal arts colleges.

Of the 30 universities listed, some famous Ivy schools were Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Brown, and University of Pennsylvania.  Other well-known schools included that University of Miami, Wake Forest University, University of Southern California, Duke University, and Georgetown University.

Starting at the bottom, the University of Alabama came in at number 30.  For beauty they were swiped right on 17.9% more than the average Hinge user, but for brains they were ranked number 88 on the US News & World Report.

Coming in at number one was Vanderbilt University with a 16.7% of swiping right more than the average Hinge user and listed as number 16 on the US News & World Report.

If you’r college didn’t make the list, don’t feel bad, I’m sure you have enough beauty and brains at your school to meet someone, at least we’re hoping…

Do you think Vanderbilt University folks are all brains and beauty?
